The Flaming Lips: Peace Sword (2013)
This release came on the heels of the previous The Terror. It's very long for something labelled as an EP.
Apparently, this music was inspired by the movie Ender's Game. I think I read elsewhere that one track was used in the film, but the rest was rejected. I guess The Flaming Lips are too esoteric for some.
This was released for Record Store Day, Black Friday 2013 in a gatefold sleeve. The sticker on the shrink wrap says:
"LIMITED EDITION VINYL EXCLUSIVE FEATURING PEACE SWORD FROM THE MOVIE ENDER'S GAME. THIS VINYL ONLY AVAILABLE AT INDEPENDENT RECORD STORES"
I love all music from this band, and this is entertaining.
