Yesterday brought the news that The Flaming Lips will be releasing a new album on April 1st called The Terror. As a sort of footnote to that story was the fact that a new, non-album track would be released next week. That song, “Sun Blows Up Today,” has in fact come out a little earlier than expected as Rolling Stone have just premiered the track. “Sun Blows Up Today” will also feature in a Hyundai advert during next weekend’s Super Bowl.
The song is surprisingly poppy and upbeat for one with the title “Sun Blows Up Today.” This is probably why it was more suited to a Hyundai commercial than an album called The Terror. Check out the lyric video for the song below, and look to grab a free download of it from Hyundai at some point next week.
