Flaming Lips is planning to release their new record “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” with an album packaging blotched with blood of artists like Ke$ha, Erykah Badu, Nick Cave and Grammy’s Best New Artist Bon Iver.
“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,” Lips leader Wayne Coyne tells Hive. “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.”
The record will apparently come as a picture disc and Coyne explains, “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.” Five or six of the special items will be made.
Do you think they were just high on meth when they thought about it or do you think it’s a brilliant idea? Would you buy this record for its packaging?
