Back in 2009, the Flaming Lips teamed with Stardeath And White Dwarfs, Henry Rollins, and Peaches to cover Dark Side Of The Moon. Now Wayne Coyne & Co. have found an even less conventional way to pay tribute to the Pink Floyd classic. The Lips have announced Flaming Side Of The Moon, an “immersive companion piece” to Dark Side, meaning you’re supposed to listen to both albums simultaneously. Flaming Side Of The Moon also syncs up with The Wizard Of Oz. This info all comes via a press release you can read below.
March, 31st 2014 – (Burbank, CA.) – THE FLAMING LIPS continue to explore the rich world of PINK FLOYD with their new digital release, FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON.
Designed as an immersive companion piece to the original 1973 album, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, listeners are encouraged to listen to the new LIPS album while listening to DARK SIDE at the same time. FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON was also carefully crafted to sync up perfectly with the 1939 film, THE WIZARD OF OZ. For ideal listening conditions, fans are encouraged to seek out the original Alan Parsons’ engineered quadraphonic LP mix of DARK SIDE, but it will work with the album on any format. Available now through all participating digital outlets.
A limited edition 100 vinyl copies will be distributed to friends and family of THE FLAMING LIPS.
You can stream it, and try to sync it up with a Dark Side x Oz YouTube, below.
