The Flaming Lips To Encase 24 Hour-Long Song In A Human Skull

Yes. You did not misread that. According to Pitchfork:

Following the release of their charitable six-hour song, the Flaming Lips will record a 24-hour track and encase five of the recordings (which will be placed on hard drives) in human skulls, reports O Music Awards. Frontman Wayne Coyne says the song is a work-in-progress, but that “it’s a song about death and it’s a song about fucking and it’s a song about life.” As far as procuring the skulls, Coyne mentions a local Oklahoma City institution: “There’s a place in town that’s called Skulls Unlimited that’s been here for almost as long as the Flaming Lips have been here, and it sells human skulls.” Appropriately, the track’s scheduled for release at midnight on Halloween.

First the gummy skulls, then gummy fetus’, NOW human skulls and a 24 hour song? This is all well and good, but WHEN ARE WE GETTING A NEW ALBUM, COYNE?
