Flaming Lips to Release Rare Blood Vinyl
Here's a new vinyl release for you really, really hard-core collectors out there. Wayne Coyne announced recently on his Twitter account that the Flaming Lips will be releasing their "blood vinyl" in early May 2012. The "blood vinyl" release is double album with real blood from the band inserted into the pressing. I'm not clear on how you manufacture an album with real blood in it, but Coyne announced that only 10 copies will be produced and a single copy will cost an eye-popping $2,500!
Stereogum notes that the albums will also contain blood from some of their collaborators, like Kei$ha, Erykah Badu, Nick Cave, Chris Martin, among others.
