The Flaming Lips have big plans for Record Store Day’s upcoming Black Friday edition, which takes place on November 29th. Not only will the band be releasing their collaborative EP with Tame Impala and a vinyl edition of their recent Peace Swords EP, they’ll also unveil their long-anticipated Stone Roses covers album.
First announced in February, the reworking of the Roses’ 1989 self-titled debut features contributions from Poliça, Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, Peaking Lights, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, New Fumes, and others, the Lips’ Wayne Coyne told Rolling Stone.
And if you still have an appetite after that splurge of Boston Market you call Thanksgiving, the Lips plan to offer a life-sized chocolate skull with brain fluid-flavored hard candy. “And there’s a little magic coin inside that brain that you’re supposed to dig out. I think it’s supposed to get you into any Flaming Lips show in the world. I think that’s our intention,” Coyne explained to Rolling Stone.
Lastly, the band will be releasing a toy frog, dubbed “Fuck You Frog”, which contains an audio recording of the band’s previously unreleased first demo.
