Make a six-hour date with the Flaming Lips’ new song

Pin it

We probably should have posted the Flaming Lips' most recent effort, "I Found This Star On The Ground" like five-and-a-half hours ago, when there were still six hours left of the nine-to-five workday. But hey, now you've got the whole weekend to get through the partly ambitious, partly ridiculous, and definitely gratuitous new song! And if you're a big enough fan of the Lips, your name is probably droning somewhere in the simultaneously ethereal, bouncy, and hypnotizing mesh of sounds; in an effort to raise money for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society, the band had allowed fans to pay $100 to be mentioned in the song.

Now, if you feel so inclined, listen to it in three separate parts here.
