The Flaming Lips’ Song ‘The Castle’ Is Basically ‘Yoshimi’ With Dragons, Which, of Course, Is the Highest Compliment

The Flaming Lips’ new song “The Castle” is a bit like coming home, if your home has a drowsy little Wayne Coyne asleep on the couch and glitter ground into every square inch of the carpet. Yesterday, the band announced their new album Oczy Mlody, due out January 13, 2017, ahead of their latest video and plans for an American tour. Coyne also appears in two behind-the-scenes videos giving a little background on the new album, which, it should almost go without saying, was inspired by a Polish novel he has never read.
