The Flaming Lips have announced details of their new album, ‘King’s Mouth’, which will be narrated by The Clash’s Mick Jones.
The record, which succeeds 2017’s ‘Oczy Mlody’, will be released on April 13, via Warner Bros.
Frontman Wayne Coyne shared the news on his Instagram page yesterday (December 4). “…ok.. so… our King’s Mouth album that will be coming out on @recordstoredayus in April has Mick Jones on it,” he wrote.
“yeah Mick Jones from The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite.. he’s doing the narration… he’s on almost every song… it really it quite unbelievable.. ill post a little video clip so you can hear him … but yeah!!!!! Man!!! Sooooo cool.”
He also tagged the likes of Nile Rodgers, Miley Cyrus, Dan Deacon, and Post Malone in the post. It is currently unclear whether those artists will also appear on the record or not.
Earlier this year, Coyne told NME he would be interested in working with Malone. “I would love to do something with him, he’s got a great melodic thing about him,” he said. “Even though it appears like he’s a rapper, he’s also a good singer and has a cool style and a good way of blending rap with some melodic stuff. His name and tattoos are great.”
The frontman also revealed his desire to release a vinyl record with Cyrus’ pee in it, following the Flaming Lips’ releases with beer and blood in. “We’d get a good amount of Miley’s pee and mix it with some glitter and put that in,” he explained. “I think that would up the ante. Don’t you?”
