Yoko Ono, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, More to appear on Flaming Lips Record Store Day set




The Flaming Lips have somehow found a few spare hours to record a run of unique sessions for an album featuring the Lips performing alongside many of their rock and alternative music-minded comrades. “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” is set to arrive on Record Store Day on April 21, and the collection features the Lips performing with some high-profile friends, including Coldplay singer and pianist Chris Martin. Others slated to appear on the set count Bon Iver, Yoko Ono, Nick Cave, Ke$ha and more.


Songs on the set include “2012” (featuring Ke$ha and Biz Markie), “Ashes in the Air” (featuring Bon Iver), “That Ain’t My Trip” (featuring Jim James of My Morning Jacket), “You, Man? Human?” (featuring Nick Cave), “Do It!” (featuring Yoko Ono), “I Don’t Want You To Die” (featuring Chris Martin of Coldplay) and more. Some of the songs have already appeared on previously released, limited vinyl, but sold out quickly. Most of the tracks on the album are previously unreleased, though, so this is new song-age for Lips fans.


“The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” will arrive pressed on two high-quality, multi-color vinyl discs housed in separate custom art jackets and poly bagged together. Each disc will look different. The double album is limited and is being released exclusively for Record Store Day.


The Flaming Lips will also have a presence on Record Store Day with the Mastodon cover of their track “A Spoonful Weighs a Ton,” which will be released on 7” baby pink vinyl. For more information on Record Store Day, please visit the event’s official site.

The Flaming Lips have teamed up with a variety of artists including Ke$ha, Bon Iver, Yoko Ono, My Morning Jacket, Nick Cave, Erykah Badu and Chris Martin of Coldplay for The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, a limited edition double album that will be released exclusively through retailers participating in Record Store Day on April 21st.


The set, which will only be issued as a double multi-colored vinyl set, includes previously released tracks that have appeared on the band's recent EPs. The band claims there will only be one pressing of the set, so hardcore Lips fans ought to get to their local shop early unless they're ready to spend big bucks landing a copy on eBay.

Wayne Coyne Talks New Flaming Lips Album, Working With Ke$ha and Coldplay, Blood


Pitchfork: Coldplay's Chris Martin contributes to Heady Fwends as well, right?


WC: Yeah, we've known Chris Martin since "Yellow" went to number one in the UK. As the years have gone on, me and him have made an effort to stay in touch. When we were finishing up this compilation, I just texted him and said, "Hey man, we should try to do something." I sent him a song that sounded like it could be a Chris Martin-type of song-- you know, it had piano chords on it, and it was sweet and sad or whatever. Five hours later, he'd recorded this thing on his phone and sent it to me. You'd think someone like Chris Martin would be like, "We have to set up studio time," but he just did it right on his fuckin' phone and sent it to me.


When we were mixing Heady Fwends, all these people were at the Grammys-- Chris Martin, Bon Iver, My Morning Jacket. But even on the night that Chris Martin was at the Grammys, during rehearsal with Rihanna, I was sending him mixes back and forth saying, "What do you think?" He'd make little comments and sent them back. I didn't realize he was even at the Grammys until I started seeing tweets like, "Hey, you know Coldplay is going to win." I'm like, "Win what?"
