Flaming Lips Gather Videos For DVD

The Flaming Lips have gathered 19 music videos for the DVD “VOID (Video Overview in Deceleration),” due Aug. 23 via Warner Bros. While heavy on material released since the Lips’ late ’90s resurgence, the DVD will also feature such formative clips as “She Don’t Use Jelly,” “Turn It On” and “Talkin’ Bout the Smiling Deathporn Immortality Blues (Everyone Wants To Live Forever).”

Fans will also find a clip for last year’s “SpongeBob and Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy” as well as a recently shot video for “Mr. Ambulance Driver,” a new song that will debut on the upcoming “Wedding Crashers” soundtrack. It will also appear on the Lips’ in-progress next studio album, “At War With the Mystics,” due sometime next year.

Group members have recorded commentary for a handful of videos on “VOID,” which will also include the U.S. and U.K. versions of “Do You Realize??” A number of the clips can be streamed on the Lips’ official Web site.

In other Lips news, the group recently recorded a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” for a tribute album due later this year via Hollywood Records. The group will play a handful of shows during the next few months, including Oct. 15 as part of the Xingolati festival aboard the Carnival Cruise Line ship the Paradise.

At the latter, the group plans to stage a playback of its 1997 album “Zaireeka,” the music for which was split across four separate CDs and, as such, requires four stereos to produce a full listening experience.
