Ono? Oh, yes!

It’s been a long year for The Flaming Lips, who, in addition to a grueling tour schedule, made good on Wayne Coyne’s public promise early last year to release new music each month. “A lot of people thought we already had 10 songs,” the front man said, “but I said, ‘No, we’re not doing that.
