If there is one thing you can count on from The Flaming Lips, it is consistency. Their records are always solid, and you can expect another one every couple of years. With that said, a few details about the next aural trip from the Lips have been announced. Frontman Wayne Coyne revealed the title of their upcoming new record to Entertainment Weekly, which will be At War With The Mystics. He also announced that he is interested in having Cat Power make a guest appearance on the album. Coyne said: “Cat Power seems like she's willing to do a big range of things, and I'm always looking for some mystery element that lets us explore new territory.''
Coyne also discussed the sound of the new record, about which he said: “'We've been using more computers and gadgets, but trying to make them sound more organic and less electronic." The follow-up to Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots should be released later this year, although a specific date has yet to be announced.
