King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have unveiled new cut "Magenta Mountain" as the second preview of their upcoming double album Omnium Gatherum.

"Magenta Mountain" will appear on Omnium Gatherum with their 18-minute lead single "The Dripping Tap", and is teamed with a John Angus Stewart-directed live video that was shot at Timeland.

Omnium Gatherum will follow King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard's 2021 albums LW and Butterfly 3000, and is the first album the band recorded together since the pandemic.

The band's Stu Mackenzie says the album title is "literally Latin for 'a collection of miscellaneous people or things'."

He adds, "This recording session felt significant. Significant because it was the first time all six Gizzards had gotten together after an extraordinarily long time in lockdown. Significant because it produced the longest studio recording we’ve ever released. Significant because (I think) it’s going to change the way we write and record music - at least for a while… A turning point. A touchstone. I think we’re entering into our ‘jammy period’. It feels good."

"Magenta Mountain" is out now. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard's Omnium Gatherum album will follow on 22 April, and is available to pre-order now.
