The Flaming Lips have shared a new single called ‘You n Me Sellin’ Weed’, alongside an accompanying video directed by George Salisbury. Shot in Oklahoma during lockdown, the visual shows frontman Wayne Coyne in the back of a car. Check it out below.
The song explores the relationship between a drug dealer and a slaughterhouse worker: “We’re the king and queen / Dope dealing celebrities in our dreams / Dreaming that one day we’ll get out of this scene / To the magic trees,” Coyne sings.
‘You n Me Sellin’ Weed’ marks the third single from the band’s upcoming LP, American Head, following the previously released ‘Dinosaurs on the Mountain’, ‘Flowers of Neptune 6’, and ‘My Religion Is You’. Back in June, they performed their 1999 song ‘Race for the Prize’ inside giant bubbles on a remote episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Their most recent album was 2019’s King’s Mouth.
