NEWS: The Flaming Lips share new song ‘We a Famly’

Ahead of the release of their new, 16th album Oczy Mlody on 13th January, cult psych-rockers The Flaming Lips have shared a brand new track.  ‘We a Famly’ is set to be the closing song on the record, and features vocals from now long-time collaborator and pop star Miley Cyrus.  The pair last teamed up on Cyrus’s 2015 album Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz.

Frontman Wayne Coyne said of the track: “at first this song was intended to be part of the Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz record..  Then we (her and us) lost interest in it…  It was, back then, very slow and serious…  But after speeding it up (a lot) and adding the galloping ‘We A Famly’ sing-a-long bit we thought it was dorky enough and fun enough to present to the world.  And…  We (Cyrus and us) really do say to each other, all the time ‘We A Famly’.”  It’s accompanied by a typically psychedelic lyric video awash with primary colours.  Listen below.

Towards the end of this month The Flaming Lips are also playing a couple of dates in the UK. Details below.

21st January – Brixton Academy, London
22nd January – Academy, Manchester
