Speaking with MTV Hive, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne revealed an interesting detail about the band’s upcoming Record Store Day project, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends. The double-LP will be out on multicolored vinyl and a limited amount (five or six) will contain the blood of some of its collaborators. Read Coyne’s words below, after which you can hear the Bon Iver-assisted “Ashes in the Air.”
…I’m going to try to make a record that has every person’s blood in the record.
Then he elaborated a little.
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.
