The Flaming Lips are releasing a new live album, The Soft Bulletin Recorded Live at Red Rocks with The Colorado Symphony Orchestra, on Friday via Warner Records. Now they have shared a video for one of its tracks, "What Is the Light?" The video features them performing the song live with The Colorado Symphony Orchestra and features feeds from four different cameras at once. George Salisbury and the band's Wayne Coyne directed the video. Watch it below.

Pick up our current print issue (the My Favorite Album Issue), to read our exclusive interview with Wayne Coyne on his all-time favorite album.

As its title suggests, the album features a live concert of them recording their acclaimed 1999 album in its entirety with The Colorado Symphony Orchestra (and conductor André de Ridder) at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, near Denver, Colorado. Previously The Flaming Lips shared one of the album's other tracks, a live version of "The Spark That Bled."

The Flaming Lips released a new album, King's Mouth: Music and Songs, back in April for Record Store Day (followed by a wider release in July). King's Mouth features spoken word vocals by Mick Jones of The Clash. One of its songs, "All For the Life of the City," was officially released online (and was one of our Songs of Week).

Read our interview with The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne on King's Mouth.
