Random Cover of the Week – The Flaming Lips’ Homage to Pink Floyd

The Flaming Lips stopped by KCRW last week for an appearance on “Morning Becomes Eclectic”. They played a few songs from their new album Embryonic, then they announced an interesting little nugget: they’ve recorded a cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. The entire album. They teamed up with Stardeath and The White Dwarfs for the project, with some other guests joining in. They didn’t announce a release date for the album, but they DID play the album’s closer, “Eclipse”:
