As previously reported, The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala aren’t just touring together, they’re also releasing a split EP featuring covers of each other’s songs. Today, The Lips shared a video for their cover of “Elephant”, which you can watch below.
The joint EP will be available at their upcoming dates in California later this month. Along with “Elephant”, Wayne Coyne and Co. recorded a version of “Runway, Houses, City, Clouds”. Tame Impala return the favor with renditions of “Are You a Hypnotist?” and “Silver Trembling Hands”.
