THE FLAMING LIPS: The Sun Blows Up Today

“The Sun Blows Up Today” is a non-album track The Flaming Lips are giving away for free when you pre-order their new album, The Terror, due out April 2nd. This is known as an Instant gratification, Non-Album, Bonus Track. Also known as “a savvy inducement for moving units in the digital age” or a “gimmick like the cardboard “Mary, Mary” Monkees 45 you cut out of the back of box of Honeycomb cereal when you were seven and then your sister grabbed it and crumbled it up and now she’s dead. Or not. Either way, both the song and the band, will be featured in a Hyundai commercial during the Super Bowl. You can see it HERE.
