Flaming Lips have released another track from their upcoming album called “Giant Baby” The new single features The Clash’s guitarist Mick Jones and is one of the band’s more relaxed songs. The spacey pop track does indeed talk about being a baby with an acoustic guitar and drum beats throughout. Its lyric video was also released and adds to the baby theme. The video displays the lyrics as if it were in a storybook. Check out both the song and video below.
It serves as the second single released from their new album King’s Mouth: Music And Songs, the band’s 15th record. According to Consequence of Sound, the album will be widely released July 19 on all platforms. It was first released on Record Store Day as a Record Store Day exclusive April 13. It was limited to 4,000 gold vinyl copies. It has received much critical acclaim so far, with Mxdwn calling it “A fantastically fanciful circus…”
Shortly after the album’s release, the band will be heading out on a co-headlining tour with The Claypool Lennon Delirium & Particle Kid. The jaunt will kick off July 23 in Kansas and will continue along the east coast in Iowa, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia, concluding in Raleigh, NC Aug.07.
