ono Check Out: The Flaming Lips feat. Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band   Atlas Eets Christmas

With a few weeks still left in the year of the gummy fetus, The Flaming Lips have added to their roster of bedfellows. Following collaborations with Prefuse 73Neon Indian, and Lightning Bolt, the Lips have teamed up with Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band for a holiday-themed number entitled “Atlas Eets Christmas”. The track was debuted earlier this morning on the band’s recently launched website, atlaseetschristmas.com, which is streaming the band’s holiday rarities on an infinite loop. Missed it? Not only will it be playing roughly every 15 or so tracks, it’s already up on YouTube. Hear it for yourself below (via Psych Explorations of the Future Heart).

Savvy fans will know that “Atlas Eets Christmas” originally appeared on a “secret” Christmas album the Lips released under the pseudonym Imagene Peise in 2007. They’ll also know that Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band will be joining Wayne Coyne et al at their fifth annual New Year’s Freakout. Tickets for the Oklahoma City show two-night event are on sale now.
