The Flaming Lips have shared the demo version of their SpongeBob SquarePants musical song ‘Tomorrow Is’.
The band contributed the song to the Tony Award-winning stage show, which first debuted in June 2016. Other artists that contributed to the musical include Cyndi Lauper, Sara Bareilles, John Legend, They Might Be Giants and Steven Tyler.
Now, sharing the original demo version – titled ‘We Only Have Tomorrow’ – it’s a glimpse into the band’s first workings of the song. Listen to it below.
Last month, frontman Wayne Coyne revealed that he wanted make vinyl out of Miley Cyrus’ piss.
“You can’t really up the ante too much from human blood, but maybe when the beer is your own beer – the beer was made especially for the Flaming Lips and has our influence in its taste and colour,” he told NME.
“That’s not as insane as having a little bit of Erykah Badu, and Chris Martin’s blood in your records. Probably not as insane as that, but still pretty great. The next record we were talking about releasing was the Miley Cyrus and the Dead Petz record. We’d get a good amount of Miley’s pee and mix it with some glitter and put that in. I think that would up the ante. Don’t you?”
He also spoke of the Mac DeMarco EP that was never released. “We played a series of shows together and we were attempting to get that done the shows, just as another interesting thing to promote brotherhood,” Coyne said.
“Mac, in his schedule, would already have tons of stuff to do, then a week later he would have twice as much stuff to do. He’s like me, he always says yes to things. We are both guilty of that.
“We had recorded a couple of tracks, there was a day when we were playing Los Angeles and we had a free day, so we scheduled a recording because we knew we wanted to do this. When we worked with Miley Cyrus, people were still recording until 6 o’clock in the morning and then you just hope that they have the strength and will-power to get up and do the recording as well. With Mac, he got a lot of people over to his house, and it was a beautiful night, people were swimming and then I had a sense that it was not going to happen.
“I’m lucky I have my own recording studio and I have an engineer that works on things even if I’m not there. Mac’s the engineer, Mac’s is everything, it it’s not like he’s the down the road at all. It’s understandable and it’s forgivable. He and I now would always say ‘of course, we’re working on it, we just haven’t finished it yet’.”
