Two more things that everyone and their mothers seem to love are release dates and previews of album cover art. So here you have it: The Lips' new record is called Embryonic —that weird hairy thing pictured above—and it will be released on October 13th. Pitchfork has also posted a new song from the album called "See The Leaves," a creepy industrial blitz that is probably going to give me nightmares tonight. Listen to it here.
Of course, The Flaming Lips will ride that giant hamster ball into the sunset at Edgefield on August 20th. But you already knew that.
