The Flaming Lips have revealed their plans for Record Store Day 2014, including re-issues, covers and clothing.
Firstly the band will be releasing a shortened version of their 24-hour-long song '7 Skies H3', which will be available on clear 12-inch vinyl. Described as a "50 minute distillation" of the original track, it will be limited to 7,500 pressings spanning 10 tracks. It will also come packaged with a digital release card.
Also available will be a 7 inch cover of Devo's 'Gates of Steel' in memorium of band member Bopb Casale who passed away last month aged 61. The b-side will include the original version of the track. Again this will be limited to 7,500 copies.
