Festivals curated, Arcade Fire beefed, great record released, pants optional: that’s how you have a year. And before the page turns on 2009, the Flaming Lips are adding to that list of distinctions with one more bit via Tuesday’s iTunes release of The Flaming Lips And Stardeath And White Dwarfs With Henry Rollins And Peaches Doing The Dark Side Of The Moon. The title sorta says it all. Wayne and the gang performed “Eclipse” on KCRW in October, and they’ll usher in 2010 by expanding on that teaser, performing Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety along with Stardeath And White Dwarfs just after the ball drop at their New Year’s Eve show in Oklahoma City’s Cox Center. Wayne seems excited! He made a trailer for the event and everything (tickets sill available for $10!), which we have here along with a tracklist breaking down the cameo appearances on the Lips’ recorded version of Pink Floyd’s classic.
The recorded breakdown:
01 “Speak To Me” / “Breathe” (featuring Henry Rollins and Peaches)
02 “On The Run” (featuring Henry Rollins)
03 “Time” / “Breathe Reprise”
04 “The Great Gig In The Sky” (featuring Peaches and Henry Rollins)
