Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips has been performing in giant plastic bubbles for years, but this year the whole band also performed in bubbles due to the pandemic and recently they went a step further and played a concert in their hometown of Oklahoma City with the whole audience in bubbles. Now they have shared a video from the show that shows the band performing “Assassins of Youth”. The band released a new album, American head, via Warner Records (streamed here) in September and the song will be recorded from there. Check out the video below.
Read our review American head.
Long-time employee Dave Fridmann was a co-producer American head with the band. The album includes “Flowers of Neptune 6,” a new song the band shared via a video for the track in May. The song featured Kacey Musgraves for extra vocals and was number 1 on our list of songs of the week.
When the album was announced in June, the band shared their second single, “My Religion Is You,” via a video for the song. Then they shared another song from the album, “Dinosaurs on the Mountain,” also via a video for the title. Then they shared a fourth song from the album, “You n Me Sellin ‘Weed,” also via a video for the track. Then they shared another song from the album “Will You Return / When You Come Down” via a video for the track, which was also one of our songs of the week. Eventually the band shared one final pre-release single from American head, “Mom, please don’t be sad,” via a video for the title that was re-added to our list of songs of the week. Then, on release day, they shared a video for “God and the Policeman,” a duet with Kacey Musgraves.
In June, The Flaming Lips performed for Die Late Show mit Stephen Colbert, with the whole band in separate plastic bubbles and also their audience, including some kids, in bubbles. And to make it even more contemporary, they did “Race for the Prize”, a classic from the 1999s Das Soft Bulletin about two scientists running for a cure. Then in September they did a performance for Die Tonight Show mit Jimmy Fallon of “God and the Policeman”, with every band member in their characteristic giant plastic bubbles.
In November 2019 The Flaming Lips released a new live album, The Soft Bulletin was recorded live at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestravia Warner Records. As the title suggests, the album featured a live concert recording their acclaimed 1999 album with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra (and conductor André de Ridder) at the Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver, Colorado .
The Flaming Lips have also teamed up with Los Angeles-based garage rock duo Deap Vally to form the collaborative band, aptly named Deap Lips. They released their debut album together entitled Deaf lips, in March via Cooking Vinyl.
