The Flaming Lips will mark the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death by releasing their cover of “Space Oddity”. The 7-inch red vinyl also contains a new original Lips song called “Jest (There Is…)”. It’ll be available on January 13th, the same day the band releases its new album, Oczy Mlody. Fans who order both releases through the band’s website will receive a discounted rate.

Below, watch The Lips cover “Space Oddity” on Colbert last year.
