Flaming Lips Give Floyd Tribute Album Full UK Release


The Flaming Lips have secured a full UK release date for their version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon.’

Their reworking of the classic 1973 album is a collaboration with Stardeath and White Dwarfs, the band that features Wayne Coyne’s nephew Dennis on vocals. Guest appearances come from Henry Rollins and the female rapper and electropop artist Peaches.

The two bands are currently taking the album out on the road. Having completed a US tour in April, the Oklahoma psych rockers are set to follow up with a handful of festival appearances, including Bonnaroo.

The project was initially hatched last year when Stardeath supported Uncle Wayne’s band on a global tour and both cited the English group as a prime influence. They first performed their collaboration at midnight on New Year’s Eve at the Cox Center, Oklahoma City.

Titled ‘The Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs With Henry Rollins and Peaches Doing The Dark Side Of The Moon,’ the album was originally released through iTunes on Dec. 22, 2009.

Then in April, a limited vinyl edition was released by Warner Bros. to coincide with Record Store Day. The CD version is released on CD on June 28.
