Flaming Lips & Friends for Rec Store Day

 

 

Somebody’s been
consulting their Screaming Lord Sutch albums…

 

 

In between one-off shows scattered around the world
in the past several months the Flaming Lips have still found time to record a
series of unique and experimental sessions for an album featuring a diverse cross-section
of heavy friends from every corner of the musical cosmos. THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS
includes vocal and musical assistance from such disparate playmates as Yoko
Ono, Nick Cave, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Bon Iver, Ke$ha and many more.  

 

 

Some of these tracks have already appeared on
previously released, extremely limited edition color vinyl 12″ EPs
released in past months, which sold out as soon as they became available. Most
of the tracks on the album are being released here for the first time and will
surprise even the most ardent LIPS fans.  

 

 

THE FLAMING LIPS AND
HEADY FWENDS
will be pressed on two high-quality, multi-color vinyl discs housed in separate
custom art jackets and poly bagged together. No two discs will look exactly alike.
This double album will be very limited and released exclusively for RECORD STORE DAY. Once it’s gone, it will not be repressed again making THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS the
most anticipated RSD release
this year.
