We’ve already heard a few choice selections off True Blood’s latest soundtrack, specifically Iggy Pop and Bethany Cosentino’s “Let’s Boot and Rally” and Deap Vally’s “(She’s A) Wanderer”. Now, SPIN has revealed The Flaming Lips’ contribution. Trading in their quirky, psychedelic meanderings for something a bit more modest and calming, “Your Face Can Tell the Future” finds Wayne Coyne & Co. looking toward a dismal future, confessing vulnerably over a simple melody, “We’re doing the best we can”. It’s not quite like the wacky Bowie cover on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon or the weirdo lab experiments in their video for “You Lust”, but it’s still just as affecting. Listen to it below.
Update: The song actually dates back to 2006, originally released in an expanded two-disc version of At War With the Mystics.
True Blood: Music from the HBO Original Series Volume 4 is out today via ATO Records.
