Out of the blood, sweat, and tears it took to make The Flaming Lips latest record, one will make it into the actual packaging. Keep reading to find out which it is.
We told you here before about the Flaming Lips new album, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends and their Record Store Day plans. The project will be their most collaborative to date and features Ke$ha, Bon Iver, Neon Indian, Chris Martin (Coldplay), Yoko Ono, and others.
“What I’m going to try to do– and I’m collecting stuff for it as we speak– is I’m going to try to make a record that has every person’s blood in the record. I don’t have everybody’s blood just yet, but I collected quite a few vials of blood and it’s actually sitting in my refrigerator as we speak… I’m going to try to take that same concept and put little bits of everybody’s blood in the middle of this record. Like a glass specimen thing.” This is what Wayne Coyne told MTV Hive about his idea of involving his collaborators into the record. Not everyone will be donating, but a few brave souls will be forever immortalized.
