Warner Bros. Records announced yesterday that The Flaming Lips’ much-publicized
, somewhat anticipated and sure-to-be-psychedelic, charitable, six-hour-long song, “Found a Star on the Ground,” will be released very soon. A press release said to stay tuned to the band’s website
Also contained within the release was this odd little nugget: “The song itself will be contained within a newly-developed mesmerizing toy, THE STROBO TRIP. This unique devise has been called ‘A Light & Audio Phase Illusions Toy’ to use used in conjunction with ‘Found A Star On The Ground’ to create a complete Lipsian happening to be enjoyed by yourself or with other interesting people or pets.”
It adds the following explanation, for context (one supposes):“Honestly users, you'll just have to experience this multi-sensory phenomenon for yourselves to understand the concept.”
We appreciate your candidness in being incapable of explaining the inner workings of The Flaming Lips’ collective brain to the masses, Warner Bros.
