The Flaming Lips Release Love Songs In Chocolate Heart – Hear Two Tracks

By Michael Nelson / February 5, 2013 - 10:20 am

The Flaming Lips are no strangers to releasing music in unconventional formats — heck, they’ve already released music inside human body parts made of candy — so their ’13 Valentine’s Day treat shouldn’t really come as a huge surprise to anyone: The Lips are releasing a compilation of love songs, contained on a USB stick, and packaged inside an anatomically correct chocolate human heart. The chocolate itself was created by Dude, Sweet Chocolate in Dallas, TX, and each box includes signatures from Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. They sell for $60 a pop — that is, they were selling for $60 a pop, but they’re sold out already. So unless you got in early, you’re probably gonna have to go with a traditional heart-shaped box this V-Day (i.e., Courtney Love’s vagina). Meanwhile, you can check out two songs below, as well as the tracklist for the comp, which will surely be made available sans chocolate pre-Feb. 14.

Tracklist:

00. “Valentine’s Theme 2013 Greeting”
01. “Love is Mind Control (featuring Stardeath And The White Dwarfs)”
02. “Be My Head”
