The Flaming Lips and Plastic Ono Band released their collaborative 12” EP at New Year’s Freak Out #5, the final of the Lips (almost) monthly 2011 releases.
The A-side features 3 new songs: The Fear Litany, Do It! and this song, The Brain of Heaven.
The B-side plays one track at 45 rpm, “Atlas Eets Christmas” - which previously streamed on the Lips’ Christmas music website atlaseetschristmas.com. Hear it here. Both sides end with locked grooves.
Each of the 2000 limited edition records are one-of-a-kind multi-color designs by Daniel Huffman (aka psych-electronic musician New Fumes). 600 of them glow in the dark. Check out his work at gonewfumes.blogspot and follow him at twitter/NewFumes.
