The Flaming Lips have released the final of their (almost) monthly 2011 releases at the New Year Freakout, a collaborative EP with Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band.
Each of the Limited Edition (2000 only) psychedelic, multi-color, glow-in-the-dark 12″ vinyl records is a one-of-kind piece of art.
Let’s sing, dance and hug each other to bring in a new year and with it, a new world.

More cool sounds as the Flaming Lips play with Sean Lennon’s drum machine and synth… and then they travel back to Oklahoma…
