Okay, that headline sounds a bit crazy. But hey – it is The Flaming Lips after all. And now they’ve gone and announced plans to release a special Valentines Day compilation album… in the form of USBs hidden in “anatomically correct” chocolate hearts.
The record, entitled Love Songs, will come encased in “72% South American dark chocolate studded with hazelnut mini whoppers and waffle cone crunch”.
The Flaming Lips are also prepping a new album proper, The Terror coming out on 1 April.
