Flaming Lips release their album The Terror in a few weeks, and last night they showed up on David Letterman to perform the song "The Terror." Wayne Coyne had said that the Lips would be abandoning the long-running stage set-up in favor of moving forward with something new, and last night was a preview of that. It was very Flaming Lips ... a womb with an otherworldly outer space kind of vibe ... but it looks awesome. Seeing it in full on the Flaming Lips tour should be exciting.

Wayne Coyne recently told Rolling Stone that as great as the old stage was, it was overdone and the band was looking for something new: "I don't know if [we're] retiring it, maybe just not do it for a while, or not do it so much and so much attention to it. . . . I just kind of feel like if we keep doing that, it stops us from doing other stuff."

The Terror was done up with long time producer/collaborator Dave Fridmann, and is "comprised of nine original compositions that reflect a darker-hued spectrum than previous works, along with a more inward-looking lyrical perspective but certainly not one without hope," according to press materials.

Wayne Coyne also did a Reddit AMA yesterday and as always, the questions from the Reddit audience ranged from ridiculous to sublime. Check it out here.
