Stream: The Flaming Lips’ Flaming Side of the Moon

on March 30, 2014, 11:15pm

It wasn’t an April Fool’s joke after all: The Flaming Lips actually made a companion album to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Flaming Side of the Moon is streaming in full below.

According to the press release, listeners are encouraged to listen to Flaming Side of the Moon and Dark Side of the Moon simultaneously. “For ideal listening conditions, fans are encouraged to seek out the original Alan Parsons’ engineered quadraphonic LP mix of Dark Side, but it will work with the album on any format,” the press release adds.

What’s more, Flaming Side of the Moon “was also carefully crafted to sync up perfectly with the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz” just as Dark Side of the Moon is rumored to do.

The album is apparently available now through all participating digital outlets, and a limited pressing of 100 vinyl copies will be distributed to friends and family of the band.

The Flaming Side of the Moon follows the band’s 2009 cover album of Dark Side of the Moon.

To see how well it syncs up, here’s Dark Side of the Moon set to Wizard of Oz:

For anyone who made the same mistake that I did–DON’T try to sync the Lips’ audio with this youtube video:

seems the audio in the youtube video is pitched slightly higher than normal, making everything sound like crap when combined with the Lips’ recording.

I was ready to call this an April Fool’s Joke on the Lips’ part by recording everything slightly flat, but I guess I just got unlucky.
