Published Jan 29, 2012The Flaming Lips have begun rolling out snippets from their upcoming compilation of collaborations, and here's another taste of the band's star-studded recent sessions. It's called "Now I Understand," and it features Erykah Badu (pictured above) and Biz Markie, plus the voice of the iPhone program Siri.
With its droning chords, mournful singing and computerized speaking, this one plays out a bit like a psychedelic version of Radiohead's "Fitter Happier." On SoundCloud, Lips leader Wayne Coyne wrote, "Sound construction piece featuring Lips, Erykah Badu, Siri, and Biz Markie backwards. It's called 'Now I Understand' It's funny and will be available on SoundCloud for one week only!!! Life is beautiful. Music gets you high."
Seeing as this will only be up for a week, don't waste any time in checking it out below.
