Got Time? Then Listen to the Flaming Lips’ New 6-Hour Song

A couple of weeks ago, Wayne Coyne and the boys made fans an offer:  give us some money and we’ll include your name in an epic composition–a musical toteboard, if you will.

Well, it’s done.  The song is called “I Found This Star On the Ground” and it runs exactly six hours.  You can listen through the Soundcloud links (found after the jump) or you can fight to be one of just eleven owners of the physical box set which comes with a stoner toy called a “Strobo Trip.”

Here’s what Wayne told Rolling Stone:  

“I mean, I don’t know if you could play with it for six hours, but it’s kind of meant so that kids can like, take LSD and play with it. You know, that’s kind of our intention, so that people buy it at like a festival, and then go back to their parents’ and take some acid and play with it all night. So it’s a song you can play while you’re sitting at your computer, you plug it in and it plays all night.”

Don’t you wish Wayne was your dad?

God bless the Lips’ fan site Slow Nerve Action for uploading the new song.
