Preview: The Flaming Lips & Chris Martin – ‘I Don’t Want To Die’

To coincide with Record Store Day 2012 (today), Wayne Coyne is releasing a quirky collaborative punch of miscellaneous talents and status from both ends of the musical spectrum.

You’ve already heard the Bon Iver cut, and now a sneak preview of the closer ‘I Don’t Want To Die’ – which features a guest middle-8 from Chris Martin and borrows lyrically from John Lennon – has appeared courtesy of The Future Heart for you to watch below.

It’s a charming glimpse into the mixing process and like the rest of the album the musical pairing matches well, but sadly The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends is only available in a record store near you, in the USA.

Bad luck British.
