In an interesting turn of events, The Flaming Lips have made plans to reveal new music… at yoga classes in their hometown of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Frontman Wayne Coyne wrote on Instagram that the city’s Yoga Box exercise studio will be playing “brand new, never heard before” Flaming Lips tracks during Friday classes throughout October.
In August, band collaborator George Salisbury posted on Instagram “Gettin’ close!!!!.” The post featured artwork on a computer screen followed by a series of files labelled “The Flaming Lips – Oczy Mlody,” suggesting the band’s new album could be titled Oczy Mlody.
The Flaming Lips released their last album of original material, The Terror, in 2013. The following year they returned with an album of Beatles covers called With A Little Help from My Fwends. They also worked with Miley Cyrus on her surprise 2015 album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.
Earlier this year The Flaming Lips released a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ in honor or the late musician.
