A New Song Every Month2011-01-13 by Andrew Kaster | 5 Comments
|It seem as if even The Flaming Lips are uncertain about the direction they will take after releasing the 2009 double album "Embryonic", and their reinterpretation of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon. To remedy this, front man Wayne Coyne has told Rolling Stone that the band plans to release a song every month in the coming year, much in the same manner as Kanye West's "G.O.O.D. Fridays" initiative and Billy Corgan's current project with The Smashing Pumpkins. They also plan to film the recording process which will connect somehow into a movie they will be making this year. |
Coyne states the reasoning behind this, "We want to try to live through our music as we create it instead of it being a collection of the last couple years of our lives."
Plans are still sketchy, as even Coyne is uncertain how the new songs will be released as he claims that they could be released in a number of different physical forms. The first track from this "project" is rumored to be released this coming Friday. One thing that is apparent is that the band is helping to pioneer an increasingly popular method of music distribution, and it remains to be seen just how many artists follow suit in the coming years.
