The Flaming Lips - Oczy Mlody
Oczy Mlody (Polish: "eyes (of the) young", pronounced "otshee mwodee") is the fourteenth studio album by experimental rock band The Flaming Lips, released on January 13, 2017, on Warner Bros in the US and Bella Union in the UK.
Generally described as a back-to-basics of the pop sensibilities touched upon with 1999's The Soft Bulletin and 2002's Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, while also building up on the ambient feel of their last album, The Terror, and topping it off with an influence of Miley Cyrus's most recent album thrown all into one sound. In two videos released in late 2016, frontman Wayne Coyne describes how he found the album title and some of the song titles and lyrics in a second-hand book, a Polish translation of Erskine Caldwell's Close to Home, titled Blisko Domu. He and the band liked the words primarily due to their sound, rather than their meaning.
