Os The Flaming Lips anunciam uma uma nova canção, “Flowers of Neptune 6,” a primeira nova gravação de 2020, disponível através da Bella Union/PIAS.
Produzida por Dave Fridmann e pelos próprios The Flaming Lips, “Flowers of Neptune 6” reflete o lado mais gentil da obra dos The Lips. A canção vem acompanhada por um vídeo filmado em Oklahoma City, cidade natal da banda, e realizado por Wayne Coyne e George Salisbury.
Wayne Coyne dos The Flaming Lips, explica o novo single: “Flowers Of Neptune 6’ started off as a very evocative series of melodies that Steven [Drozd] had woven together. The first time he played it for me I was stunned by its emotional flow. The three sections (well they seem like sections to me) seemed to hint at an older, mature mind reflecting back into a journey from younger innocence then starting to learn and understand and keeps going into the panic of becoming one with the world. The opening lyric ‘Yellow sun is going down so slow…Doing acid and watching the light-bugs glow like tiny spaceships in a row…’ is the coolest thing I’ll ever know…and is a combination of blissful, innocent, psychedelic experiences that Steven and Kacey Musgraves (she sings harmony with me on the track) and myself all discussed.”
“Flowers of Neptune 6” é a primeira música nova dos The Lips desde “King’s Mouth” de 2019.
