Founding fathers of Atlanta's "flower punk" movement the Black
Lips are set to release Arabia Mountain, their sixth full-length
album, June 7th on longtime label Vice. Arabia Mountain was
recorded between Brooklyn and Atlanta over the last few months of
2010 with the collaborative assistance of celebrated DJ and producer
Mark Ronson, Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter, and a human skull with
a microphone jammed into it.
Arabia Mountain marks the first time the Lips have worked with an
outside producer. Mark Ronson, best known for his production work
with the likes of Nas, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran, Lily Allen,
and Amy Winehouse, recorded nine of the album's 16 tracks.
