One of the most anticipated albums of the year, THE FLAMING LIPS’ THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS sold out instantly at retail outlets around the world when it was released on vinyl in honor of Record Store Day this past year. Due to overwhelming demand, Warner Bros. Records made the album available on physical CD and digitally via all digital retailers.
It’s no surprise that THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS was among the Top 3 best-selling albums on Record Store Day, due to its collaborative nature with an unexpected array of Special Guests, it’s aesthetic beauty pressed into vibrant psychedelic rainbows of color (no two pressings alike) and the simple fact that THE FLAMING LIPS deliver something special with each new release.
THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS just may be their most adventurous recorded experience to date. The album contains the band’s unique and experimental collaborations with a diverse cross-section of heavy friends from every corner of the musical cosmos, including vocal and musical assistance from such disparate playmates as Yoko Ono, Nick Cave, Bon Iver, Ke$ha and many more. A new track recorded with Aaron Behrens of Ghostland Observatory is exclusive to the CD and digital versions and was not included on the vinyl edition.
