The Flaming Lips have released Flowers Of Neptune 6, their first new song of the year.
“Flowers Of Neptune 6 track started off as a very evocative series of melodies that Steven had woven together,” Wayne Coyne explains. “The first time he played it for me I was stunned by its emotional flow.”
“The three sections (well they seem like sections to me) seemed to hint at an older, mature mind reflecting back into a journey from younger innocence then starting to learn and understand and keeps going into the panic of becoming one with the world.”
“The opening lyric, ‘Yellow sun is going down so slow. Doing acid and watching the light-bugs glow like tiny spaceships in a row’, is the coolest thing I’ll ever know…and is a combination of blissful, innocent, psychedelic experiences that Steven and Kacey Musgraves (she sings harmony with me on the track) and myself all discussed.”
