As you can see from that post above, it also appears that the band have shared a bit of the album cover, though so far, further details are slim. It should be noted that King's Mouth was also the name of Coyne's art installation from 2015, so the two project may be linked.
Record Store Day 2019 takes place on April 13.
The Flaming Lips' last proper studio album was 2017's Oczy Mlody.
