WATCH: The Flaming Lips feat. Mick Jones Release New Video for “Giant Baby”
The track comes off their recent King’s Mouth: Music and Songs.
The Flaming Lips have a new video for “Giant Baby,” filmed in Oklahoma City and Los Angeles and directed by frontman Wayne Coyne, with a brief cameo from friend and comedian Fred Armisen.
The track comes off their record King’s Mouth: Music and Songs, which features narration from Mick Jones of The Clash and also doubles as the soundtrack to Coyne’s art installation. King’s Mouth: Immerse Heap Trip Fantasy Experience details the making of the record, one of the group’s most ambitious to date. Coyne wrote of the project, “The King’s Mouth immersive/child-like qualities are born from the same spark and womb as The Flaming Lips’ live performances.”
Wayne Coyne has a new baby at home, so perhaps that experience shaped both his interest in the child-like and the visual for “Giant Baby,” a characteristically colorful, trippy jaunt in which Coyne & co. dance beneath strings of neon LED lights and seem both joyous and at peace.
