NEW YORK, September 15, 2009 -- Listen up Nation. For the first time ever, ColbertNation.com will stream full albums from upcoming musical guests appearing on COMEDY CENTRAL's "The Colbert Report." The Flaming Lips will become the first performers to debut their new double album "Embryonic" on ColbertNation.com. The band will appear on the show on Wednesday, September 16 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. The album will be made available online for a limited-time only immediately after Wednesday night's show through Monday, September 21. "Embryonic" will be released on Tuesday, October 13. Also, this is the first time The Flaming Lips have pre-released an album digitally in its entirety.
The Mountain Goats are slated to make their late night television debut on "The Colbert Report" on Tuesday, October 6 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. ColbertNation.com will stream their upcoming album "The Life of the World to Come."
"Embryonic" is The Lips' 12th album and will be released by Warner Bros. Records on Tuesday, October 13. This marks their first full studio set in three years following their Grammy Award-winning "At War With The Mystics." "Embryonic" was recorded in Fredonia, NY and Oklahoma City, OK with studio whiz and general co-conspirator Dave Fridmann and just may be their most sonically adventurous and compositionally vernal form of musical expression ever. For more info, visit www.flaminglips.com.
The Mountain Goats are comprised of John Darnielle, Peter Hughes (bass) and Jon Wurster (drums). On Tuesday, October 6, 4AD is set to release the band's sixth album "The Life Of The World To Come." Less a profession of religious faith than an immersion in Biblical poetry and imagery, the songs on the album take their names from verses that informed or inspired them.
