The Flaming Lips - The W.A.N.D.

The Flaming Lips will release their next album At War With The Mystics on April 4th, and I don't know about you, but this one is up there with my most anticipated albums of 2006. Slowly we're starting to get a sense of what it will sound like, and it seems to be a slightly mellower but still lush album full of psychadelic soundscapes. They will be releasing a single for "The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song" on March 27th in the U.K., a song that (according to Pitchfork) was inspired by their cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". My guess is there's a lot more stuff on this album that was also inspired by Queen, as witnessed by this new track "The W.A.N.D.". The bonus track below is another new song they've already released a great video for, "You've Got To Hold On". In the meantime, look for their album The Soft Bulletin to be re-released on 5.1 surround sound DVD on January 31st.

This song is fantastic; cannot wait for the album. I appreciated the eps after "Yoshimi" but their is no substitute for a Flaming Lips' album.
