Available April 21st, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends contains 13 collaborative tracks, many of which are previously unreleased. In addition to previously-heard efforts with Neon Indian, Prefuse 73, and Lightning Bolt, the compilation packs new collaborations with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Bon Iver, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Nick Cave, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Yoko Ono, Erykah Badu, and Biz Markie. Check out the full tracklist below.
The limited-edition album will be pressed on two high-quality, multi-color 12″ vinyl discs, housed in separate custom art jackets and poly bagged together. A press release states that no two discs will look exactly alike and cautions that this will be on the only pressing.
In addition to the compilation, The Lips have also teamed with Mastodon for a split 7″ single as part of the Side by Side 2012 Series available exclusively for Record Store Day. One side features The Lips’ Soft Bulletin track “Spoonful Weighs a Ton”, while the flip-side contains Mastodon’s cover of it.
