ARTIST: The Flaming Lips

ALBUM TITLE: Late Night Tales

LABEL: Azuli Records

GENRE: Indie Rock Electronica

RELEASE DATE: June 21st , 2005

The Flaming Lips’ celebrated re-reading of the White Stripes ‘Seven Nation Army’, which has been eagerly sought across the worldwide web since being performed live at the Hammersmith Apollo late last year, will finally see the light of day as one of the highlights of the band’s forthcoming ‘Late Night Tales’ compilation of their listening “pleasuresâ€. This is an exclusive track to this album – you won’t be hearing it anywhere else!

For anyone who’s ever found the - albeit enchanting and engrossing – Lips’ listening experience akin to unraveling a riddle wrapped inside an enigma, ‘Late Night Tales’ is likely to further flummox with its unlikely evidence of what the trio listen to kicking back at home in Oklahoma City. You might guess that any band that takes in Wayne Coyne, Stephen Drozd and Michael Ivins, was always going to be, um, far-reaching in its tastes, but ‘Late Night Tales’ shows their musical solar system to be bigger yet than science had hitherto conjectured.

Bjork kicks off the collection, though sadly not with her once mooted Christmas collaboration with the Lips, but instead the marvelous ‘Unravel’. Other highlights include Roxy Music’s ‘2HB’, from their 1972 self-titled high-water mark debut, the overlooked majesty of The Chameleons ‘Up The Down Escalator’ and recognized majesty of Radiohead’s ‘Pyramid Song’.
