For Record Store Day, The Flaming Lips released a record with beer pressed inside.

The record revival has seen many inventive ways to press a record. In 2012, Wayne Coyne and his band released the band’s album ‘Heady Fwends’ on vinyl that includes samples of the band’s actual blood inside it.

However, for this year’s Record Store Day, The Flaming Lips teamed up with Dogfish Head Alehouse to press their beer, Dragons & Yums Yums, into the record.

The RSD 7″ was pressed on pink vinyl and features two new songs, ‘The Story Of Yum Yum and Dragon’ and ‘Beer in Your Ear’. There are 5,600 copies printed on pink vinyl and only 100 available of the beer vinyl.
