The Flaming Lips — American Head (Sept. 11, 2020)

USA FLAG                                                                         The Flaming Lips — American Head (Sept. 11, 2020)  The Flaming Lips — American Head (Sept. 11, 2020)■  Ze stěn kaskádovitě padá vodopád, který uniká po podlaze a klidně „protéká“ pod vašima nohama; motýli se „vymanili“ ze svých rámů do vzduchu a do dalších uměleckých děl; květiny ‚rozkvétají‘ z těla. V první místnosti se nachází trhák s výstavou Vesmír vodních částic, kde přes stěny galerie a podlahu přesahuje fascinující virtuální vodopád, který volně proudí prostorem a na nohy diváka.

■  Wayne Coyne explains the new track: “’Flowers Of Neptune 6’ track 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” is the first new music from The Lips since 2019’s internationally acclaimed King’s Mouth Music And Songs. Expect additional details to be revealed soon.
