The Flaming Lips Get Set for "24 Hour Song Skull" with New Website
Published Oct 27, 2011We're still trying to get our heads around the idea that the Flaming Lips have created a 24-hour song. The wait for this mind-bending piece of music is almost over, though, since the band have created a website especially for streaming the track.
The website indicates that the track is called "7 Skies H3." The site isn't much to look at, but it does feature a picture of a goo-topped human skull with a USB connector coming out of the ear; remember that the band promised that the song would come encased in a human skull.
As previously confirmed, the song will be unveiled on midnight (CST) on Halloween -- so if you begin streaming it immediately, it will finish right as the calendar turns over to November. The website includes a countdown clock to when the track will be unveiled.
It's probably a good thing that the song will be available as an online stream, since the band posted a tweet noting that the file takes up 24 gigabytes of hard drive space.
Of course, this follows hot on the heels of the band's six-hour song, which you can listen to below.
