For a while now, the Flaming Lips have been kicking around the idea of recording a full-length tribute to King Crimson’s 1969 prog-rock classic In The Court Of The Crimson King, and now it sure looks like it’s happening. The band has teamed up once again with New Fumes, their “Girl, You’re So Weird” collaborators, to record their own version of King Crimson’s 12-minute epic “Moonchild.” Download the cover below.
