flaming lips rsd The Flaming Lips Record Store Day release contains collaborators blood

As previously reported, The Flaming Lips’ Record Store Day compilation, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, features collaborations with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Bon Iver, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Nick Cave, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, and Neon Indan, among others. As Psych Explorations of the Future Heart points out, a few copies of the record will also pack these collaborators’ blood. (Don’t ask surprised.)

“What I’m going to try to do — and I’m collecting stuff for it as we speak — is I’m going to try to make a record that has every person’s blood in the record,” Lips mastermind Wayne Coyne explained to MTV Hive. “I don’t have everybody’s blood just yet, but I collected quite a few vials of blood and it’s actually sitting in my refrigerator as we speak.”

Coyne added he’s taking the “same concept” of a picture disk and putting “little bits of everybody’s blood in the middle of this record. Like a glass specimen thing.” He didn’t say whose blood he’s already collected, but noted that only “five or six [copies] will be made and will likely be sold to…interested rich Flaming Lips people.”

Check out the compliation’s tracklist below, along with the Lips and Neon Indian’s track “Is David Bowie Dying?”.
