Amid their record-breaking feat of playing eight concerts in 24 hours, The Flaming Lips offered the first taste of their next studio album. As MTV reports, the band performed “You Lust” with Phantogram during their stop in Biloxi, Mississippi. And since whole thing was streamed live online, you can watch pro-shot footage below.

Speaking recently with Rolling Stone, Wayne Coyne said many tracks on the new album were composed “subconsciously” during sessions for the the band’s recent collaboration album, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends. “It really took us by surprise… We were kind of making it like we were sleepwalking.”

The Lips plan to complete the album next month, but Coyne is already hyping the hell out of it “I honestly think it might be the best Flaming Lips record that we’ve ever made,” he declared.
