Discussing the track, the band's multi-instrumentalist
Steven Drozd said:

The Flaming Lips will release their new album,
'The Terror' on April 1st, however 'Blow Up
Sun' will not feature on the 13th studio offering by Wayne
Coyne and co.
The LP is described as 'nine original compositions that reflect a
darker-hued spectrum than previous works along with a more
inward-looking lyrical perspective than one might expect - but then

"Why would we make this music that is 'The Terror' - this

The Flaming Lips will also play two live dates in
London following the release of 'The Terror'
performing at London's Roundhouse venue in Camden on May 20th and
