The video for The Flaming Lips and Bon Iver’s collaboration “Ashes In The Air”, off last year’s compilation album The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, was originally set to premiere last Christmas. It’s probably a good thing it didn’t, because I couldn’t think of less Christmassy visuals: a spaceman with an eye for a head rescues a baby (?) from a crashed spaceship and proceeds to shred him up in a meat grinder. Happy holidays, everybody!
Watch the video, along with Rock it Out Blog’s recent interview with frontman Wayne Coyne below.
The Lips’ new album, The Terror, arrives April 16th via Warner Bros. Pre-orders are ongoing.
