15th Studio Album On Vinyl LP!

TAS Rated 4.5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics in the July/August 2019 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

King’s Mouth contains twelve new original Flaming Lips compositions as well as album narration by Mick Jones (The Clash). The record is based on Wayne Coyne’s immersive art installation of the same name - which has seen its psychedelic visuals and soundscapes exhibited in museums all around the U.S.

The concept album was conceived as the soundtrack to Wayne Coyne's art exhibit of the same name which opened in 2017.

"King's Mouth follows the trajectory of Wayne Coyne's fractured fairytale as buttressed with South London-accented narration by the Clash's resident iconoclast, Mick Jones... The cinematic nature of King's Mouth comes across in full-bore exploratory Lips style, challenging stereo soundfield parameters every beep and boop of the way. Bear sonic witness to such wide-panned tracks as the burbling, keyboard-kissed wonderment of "Giant Baby", the channel-swirling synth hosannas of "Electric Fire," the percussive pre-funereal onomatopoeia of "Feedaloodum Beedle Dot", and the buoyant, acoustified album-ending parable twins, "Mouth of The king" and "How Can A Head". King's Mouth adds yet another lofty chapter to the Lips' keen catalog of wide-eyed aural head trips." - Mike Mettler, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2019
