Band may release new music with the medium of toys

The Flaming Lips to release 'a song a month' in 2011
The Flaming Lips are aiming to release a new song every month this year.

The band are set to start recording new material later this month, with frontman Wayne Coyne confirming that they're planning to release new material in an unorthodox way.

"With this new thing, we're going to spend a lot of time recording at our houses or wherever we are at," he told Rolling Stone. "We'll try to release a song a month and document the song in the making, whether it takes us three or five days or a week. It's gonna be, 'We're working on a song and it's gonna be up by Friday'. We just want to [release new material] some other way."

One idea Coyne has had about releasing the tracks involves children's toys.

"The dilemma is whether we're going to release it on vinyl, cereal boxes or some of it on toys that we make," he said. "I've been dealing with a guy who flies to China and Korea six times a year and he's always making these new fantastic looking toys and having companies manufacture them."

Coyne added that the band are set to work with producer Dave Fridmann again on the new material. They are also planning to release videos alongside each individual song, with an aim to provide "a bigger movie" of the project.
