American alt-band The Flaming Lips have been releasing songs all year in wildly absurd ways, including embedding a flash drive containing a song inside a marijuana-flavored gummy skull. And this weekend the famed psychedelic rockers began streaming a 24-hour song on a website devoted to the cause.
As previously reported, “7 Skies H3” is also being released October 31 on a USB drive packaged inside a chrome-covered real-life human skull. According to the website, only 13 skulls are available for purchase and priced at $5,000 a piece.
The three-time Grammy winners have also been busy collaborating with artists including Nick Cave, Panda Bear, Death Cab For Cutie, and Ghostland Observatory on new songs. The band’s last album, 2009’s The Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs with Henry Rollins and Peaches Doing The Dark Side of the Moon, is a track-for-track remake of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon.
