And you thought Bob Dylan’s “Hurricane” was a long jam. Wayne Coyne shot off a couple of tweets this morning that indicate that the Flaming Lips are currently working on a six-hour song.
The tweets don’t give away that much info — just some ambient noise and blurry images — but Coyne has been pretty consistent about teasing new tunes via Twitter, including the video for “I’m Working At NASA On Acid” (a collaboration with Lightening Bolt from the 4-song EP, The Flaming Lips with Lightning Bolt) last week.
We’ve reached out to Coyne’s camp for more info, but, needless to say: We’re expecting weird things. Coyne and the Lips have been undertaking a kind of large-scale performance art piece this past year: announcing a grand plan to release one song per month all year long, creating an epic song called “Two Blogs F**king” from 12 YouTube videos, releasing songs via USBs embedded in gummy skulls and fetuses, and collaborating with myriad musicians.
No wonder Coyne was nominated for an O Music Award for Most Innovative Artist.
