The Flaming Lips have revealed that they will be using the blood of some of the many contributors to their Record Store Day project in the a limited-edition run of packaging.

The packaging of some editions of 'The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends' will contain the blood of a number of the release's collaborators, a list which includes Bon Iver, Nick Cave, Ke$ha, Neon Indian and Erykah Badu.

Speaking to MTV Hive via Pitchfork, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne said: "What I'm going to try to do - and I'm collecting stuff for it as we speak - is I'm going to try to make a record that has every person's blood in the record."

He continued: "I don't have everybody's blood just yet, but I collected quite a few vials of blood and it's actually sitting in my refrigerator as we speak... I'm going to try to take that same concept and put little bits of everybody's blood in the middle of this record. Like a glass specimen thing."

Apparently Coyne has so far collected blood from Neon Indian, Prefuse 73 and Ke$ha. Only five or six blood discs will be made and, says Coyne, will likely be bought by "interested rich Flaming Lips people".
