One Day. One Song. One Band… Thirteen Skulls?

by on October 31, 2011

I try to avoid repeating music news from Pitchfork, Spin and other music blogs; There doesn’t seem to be much of a point to it. If you want music headlines, go to said websites. BUT there are exceptions to every rule. Today, for example, The Flaming Lips announced the upcoming release of their “24 Hour Song,” which will be placed on hard drives, encased in 13 skulls — yes, skulls — and then sold for $5,000 USD.

If you don’t have 5 grand lying around the house, it’s currently streaming for exactly 24 hours on THIS website. So, HURRY UP and give it a listen!

Below you can listen to TFL’s 6 hour song from last month:
