The Flaming Lips And Heavy Fwends is out via Warner Bros 4/21. Wayne Coyne tells MTV there may also be a limited edition that will contain his collaborators’ blood:

“What I’m going to try to do — and I’m collecting stuff for it as we speak — is I’m going to try to make a record that has every person’s blood in the record. I don’t have everybody’s blood just yet, but I collected quite a few vials of blood and it’s actually sitting in my refrigerator as we speak.”

You probably already assumed as much.
