Stereogum has the scoop, with quotes from Bruce. 

Waterloo Records describes it as “a more upbeat record overall, speaking on COVID-19 using the world of science as a recurring influence”. Bruce describes it to them. Bruce tells them the title “relates to this strange time in which we live, when the world is basically, well, ‘flicted”.

The structure on the cover has acted as a restaurant, wine bar, gas station and latterly an art museum called the Coffee Pot in Lexington, Virginia. (“‘Flicted” also marks the first time that Bruce has appeared on the cover of one of his studio releases since “A Night on the Town“!)
