I had no idea The Flaming Lips were putting out a new album this year, but was pleasantly surprised to see that not only are they releasing something new, but that it can be streamed in its entirety on The Colbert Report website. It is called Embryonic and will be officially released on 10/13/09. I never heard/saw the last release which was the Christmas On Mars DVD/CD (they made a movie and created an accompanying soundtrack) and had trouble getting into the album before that, At War With The Mystics, so I do have skepticism about this release. That being said, their albums Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots and Transmissions From The Satellite Heart are both so ridiculously good that they make most anything new The Flaming Lips release worth checking out just to see if it is on par with those.
