The Flaming Lips are to release their Stone Roses covers album later this month as part of the band's series of Black Friday releases, reports Consequence Of Sound.

Announced back in February of this year, the Wayne Coyne-fronted band have curated their own version of the Manchester group's 1989 self-titled debut and are set to release it on November 29. The record also features contributions from a host of musicians including Poliça, Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, Peaking Lights and more.

The band will also release their new Ender's Game-inspired 'Peace Sword' EP, split record with Tame Impala and a life-sized chocolate skull with "brain fluid-flavoured hard candy". Speaking to Rolling Stone about the latter, Coyne explained: "There's a little magic coin inside that brain that you're supposed to dig out. I think it's supposed to get you into any Flaming Lips show in the world. I think that's our intention."

Also planned for release on Black Friday is a toy frog, apparently called "Fuck You Frog", which contains a recording of The Flaming Lips' previously unreleased first demo.

Last month, the band shocked fans by announcing their split via Twitter. A now-deleted tweet read: "We have sad news. We've broken up…". However, 18 minutes later another tweet appeared saying "lol just joking guys." A spokesperson for the band stated the first tweet was "not true" whilst Wayne Coyne used his personal Twitter account to tell fans: "The Flaming Lips twitter has been hijacked!!!!"
