The Flaming Lips‘ new album is being previewed with ‘Look…The Sun Is Rising‘ over at NPR.

The track is due to feature on ‘The Terror‘, which is set for release on April 1st after being produced by both the band and Dave Fridmann in New York’s Tarbox Studios.

“Why would we make this music that is ‘The Terror’ – this bleak, disturbing record? I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that we were hopeless, we were disturbed and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless,” Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has said. “Or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.”

In addition, The Flaming Lips have added a fresh series of tour dates to their spring 2013 schedule, to go with previously announced shows at SXSW and the London Roundhouse among others.
