The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne announces their new King's Mouth record, and reveals it'll be largely narrated by The Clash's Mick Jones.
Taking to Instagram to announce the album, Wayne Coyne reveals The Flaming Lips' follow-up to last year's Oczy Mlody will be released as part of Record Store Day in the US.
Coyne expands on the Mick Jones narration, "he's on almost every song...it really [is] quite unbelievable."

King's Mouth coincidentally takes the same name as Coyne's art installation that merges his elaborate props into an audio/visual experience.
Over summer, Coyne and co released two compilations full of remastered tracks, rare recordings and early sessions from the psych outfit.
