Watch: Wayne Coyne Talks The Flaming Lips' Six-Hour Song

When we reported on the Flaming Lips' six-hour-long song idea a few weeks ago, frontman Wayne Coyne had only revealed some very small details surrounding the lengthy project. But he's shed some more light on the track lately, particularly during a hilarious interview with a local news station in Oklahoma.

Coyne explains that he came up with the concept for the track while playing with a toy that he said could be fun for hours upon hours. So, he thought, why don't The Flaming Lips do the same with a song? Thus began the ardurous process of recording a track that's more than six times longer than most albums. And he also revealed that you (meaning any Flaming Lips fan) can actually be a part of the project if you donate funds to its creation. You can donate money here and if you give up $100 or more, your name will end up within the six-hour musical madness.

You can watch the interview below.

Update: You can listen to all three parts of the song below. It stems from the Strobo Trip EP, which you can hear more of on YouTube.
