Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus perform onstage during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Aug. 30, 2015 in Los Angeles. 

Wayne Coyne and his fellow spacemen The Flaming Lips have released their latest musical odyssey, Oczy Mlody (Warner Bros. Records). 

The psychedelic rock veterans take a journey through their colorful cosmos on the new album, which carries the previously released tracks “Sunrise (Eyes of the Young),” “How??,” “The Castle” (which Coyne and Co. performed earlier this week on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) and the Miley Cyrus-starring closer “We A Family”. 

Oczy Mlody is the Lips’ first traditional, non-collaborative LP since 2013’s The Terror, and follows 2015’s Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, which the band released in collaboration with the pop artist. In the year before that, they released With a Little Help from My Fwends, a track-for-track cover of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, featuring guest spots from Cyrus, Phantogram, Tegan and Sara, and many others. 

The Flaming Lips will kick off a world tour in support of Oczy Mlody with a Jan. 21 concert at London’s Brixton Academy.
