Flaming Lips to release human skull and 24-hour long song

The Flaming Lips see your deluxe-edition, 180-gram vinyl, and raise you a real, actual human skull.

After releasing their songs on a USB inside a neon gummy-skull, the Flaming Lips have gone one further and attached a portable harddrive containing one 24-hour-long track to the inside of five human skulls.

Apparently to be purchased from local skull supplier (lead singer Wayne Coyne lives in Oklahoma) Skulls Unlimited, all the skulls have already been pre-ordered, despite the $5,000 price tag.

For the vast majority of the human race who have not bought the skull, below is a section of their recent, six-hour long song.
