Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips: Music, Art & Ideas

Email a Friend
The Flaming Lips latest album, 'Oczy Mlody' is out now.

You may have seen Wayne Coyne, the frontman of the Flaming Lips, walking over his audience in a large plastic bubble, or leading an orchestra of car radios in a parking lot, or working with Miley Cyrus, or any of a number of other unusual and inventive projects. But at the end of the day, Wayne Coyne is a songwriter, and he’s written a strong collection for the latest album by the Flaming Lips, for which they chose a Polish title – Oczy Mlody. Coyne joins John in the studio to talk about the interesting R&B-like production on the record, the absurdity of holding the title to Oklahoma state rock song for a few years, and embracing the freak in all of us.
