The Flaming Lips’ version is titled Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn and features contributions from New Fumes, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, Linear Downfall, and Spaceface.
According to Future Heart, a limited edition multi-color vinyl of the album is currently being sold at Dallas’ Good Records.
