THE
FLAMING LIPS 'Dark Side Of The Moon' [Release Date
28/06/2010]

Fans of The
Flaming Lips have come to expect the unexpected. But even the most ardent
devotee of the band must've been surprised when a session recorded with their
friends Stardeath and White Dwarfs spiralled into a complete re-recording of
Pink Floyd's classic album 'The Dark Side of the Moon'. This reinterpretation of
one of history's most revered albums will be released on CD on June 28th
following their Glastonbury performance.

The
collaborative project was recorded after several weeks of both bands touring the
world together and mutually citing Pink Floyd and 'The Dark Side of the Moon' as
one of their primary influences and favourite bands of all time. The sessions
were tracked in Oklahoma City, recorded by Trent Bell and Chris Harris, and
mastered by Dave Fridmann. The album was co-produced by The Flaming Lips,
Stardeath and White Dwarfs, Trent Bell, and Scott Booker, and features vocal
assistance by Henry Rollins and Peaches.

The Flaming
Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs performed their version of 'The Dark Side of
the Moon' at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve at a special show at the
Cox Center in Oklahoma City. This was the only planned live performance of the
album.
