The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips have announced their version of The Stone Roses' self-titled debut will be released for Record Store Day's Black Friday event.

The covers album features collaborations with Poliça, Foxygen's Jonathan Rado and Spaceface.

That's not all though, Wayne Coyne's band have also announced an EP with Tame Impala - they'll be covering each other's songs - as well as something edible.

"It's all made out of chocolate, it's a life-size human skull, a life-sized human brain, and the brain is actually sliding out of the skull made with this brain fluid flavored hard-candy," Coyne told Rolling Stone. "And there's a little magic coin inside that brain that you're supposed to dig out. I think it's supposed to get you into any Flaming Lips show in the world. I think that's our intention."

It's hoped but not certain whether the chocolate skull will be ready in time for Record Store Day's Black Friday - which takes place later this month. Coyne does suggest if it isn't it might make a good Christmas present. A brain fluid flavoured Christmas present.
