Courtesy of a Facebook picture from The Flaming Lips’ official account, it looks like 7 Skies H3 is being released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2014. Now the song is actually 24 hours long, so who knows what the band is planning for the release. They list “35 PCS” on the picture, but they can’t be that crazy to release a 35xLP set (probably more like 35 test pressings were made).
What makes more sense is if they went with a 80-minute runtime that they teased in a Pitchfork interview before last year’s RSD. You can see the segment below that teases the pressing:
True to form, there’s a Zaireeka vinyl reissue set for release on Record Store Day (note that the liner notes for this release contain excerpts from the 33 1/3 book on the album by Pitchfork’s Mark Richardson), and plans to press their 24-hour song “7 Skies H3” on wax (albeit at a more manageable 80-minute runtime), as well as the still-in-the-works musical adaptation of the 2002 album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and some film-scoring work.
Update 2/26/14: It has been confirmed as a single LP reduction.
