Flaming Lips releasing choco heart LP

Releases

Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips have only gone and flaming done it again… ‘it’ meaning releasing music via weird media. Past ventures have included real human skulls and gummy foeti, for example.

This time, Wayne Coyne and co have bequeathed loving fans a Valentines treat in the shape of new USB-stick based LP ‘Songs Of Love’. The fifteen track mix is set into an anatomically realistic (and edible) replica of a human heart made of “72% South American dark chocolate studded with hazelnut mini whoppers and waffle cone crunch”. Mmm, coronary candy.

Although unlike Austrian musician Soap&Skins’ offering in that confectionary genre, it doesn’t contain real blood. What a cop out.

Anyway. All the hearts made so far have been purchased, but you can nevertheless lust over one via this link.
