It's going to be a good year for Flaming Lips fans. Wayne Coyne has said that the band will release a song a month for the entire year of 2011. They're getting tired of the same old long album cycle, and want to change things up, keep the the Flaming Lips music presence fresh.
"With this new thing, we're going to spend a lot of time recording at our houses or wherever we are at. We'll try to release a song a month and document the song in the making, whether it takes us three or five days or a week. It's gonna be, 'We're working on a song and it's gonna be up by Friday.' We just want to [release material] some other way," said Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne recently when speaking to SPIN. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/exclusive-new-flaming-lips-material-coming-late-january-20101223
"Not that I think the old way was boring, but to spend another two years with the same 13 songs, it's just like fuck. I think we're going to just start to do things and put it out. Once we get 11 or 12 songs together, maybe we'll do something else with it. We want to try to live through our music as we create it instead of it being a collection of the last couple years of our lives."
The Lips hope to start this month, but ... we'll see how it goes. Of course they'll video the whole process so we'll get to see things in transition.
"We'll start in late January, though I'm not sure if we'll get together exactly by then."
