The Flaming Lips Release Cover of 'Peace On Earth'/ 'Little Drummer Boy'

Today THE FLAMING LIPS celebrate the spirit of the season by releasing a performance video of the Christmas classics "Peace On Earth"/ "Little Drummer Boy". The film and audio recording were captured at Coyne's Pink Floor Studios in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and features THE LIPS live line-up of Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins, Derek Brown, Jake Ingalls, Matt Kirksy and Nicholas Ley performing the songs. The video was directed by Wayne Coyne and George Salisbury.

THE LIPS taking on these perennial classics is considered homage to the David Bowie/Bing Crosby medley of "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" from 1977 under the banner of "Christmas of the Future".
