The highly anticipated debut album, Strange Desire, from Bleachers will be out July 15th. And now, fans who pre-order the album starting today will receive the new track, “Rollercoaster” instantly.
In addition, any fan who pre-orders the album from Bleachers web store will receive a CD or an exclusive transparent orange vinyl, a limited edition T-shirt, a limited edition Autumn de Wilde print and a 5 song bonus CD containing demos from the album. They will also be supplied a pre-sale code granting them early access to tickets for the first leg of Bleachers’ The Strange Desire World Tour. Special ticket offers for the second leg of the tour will become available on album release day, July 15th.
Since the initial announcement in February, Bleachers has been selected as a Spotify Spotlight artist and “I Wanna Get Better” has shot into the top 5 at Alt radio and is still growing. This past weekend Bleachers kicked off their summer festival tour dates at New York’s Governor’s Ball, ““The crowd was nothing but fully awake for his closer, the upbeat anthem and first single “I Wanna Get Better,” and the audience danced along and sang with the refrain. It was a perfect way to start Gov Ball Day Three.”” wrote Billboard.
In between one-off shows scattered around the world in the past several months The Flaming Lips have still found time to record a series of unique and experimental sessions for an album featuring a diverse cross-section of heavy friends from every corner of the musical cosmos. The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends includes vocal and musical assistance from such disparate playmates as Yoko Ono, Nick Cave, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Bon Iver, Ke$ha and many more.
Some of these tracks have already appeared on previously released, extremely limited edition color vinyl 12″ EPs released in past months, which sold out as soon as they became available. Most of the tracks on the album are being released here for the first time and will surprise even the most ardent LIPS fans.
The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends will be pressed on two high-quality, multi-color vinyl discs housed in separate custom art jackets and poly bagged together. No two discs will look exactly alike. This double album will be very limited and released exclusively for RECORD STORE DAY. Once it’s gone, it will not be repressed again making THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS the most anticipated RSD release this year.
Track-listing for The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends is as follows:
