As one album reviewer put it, The Flaming Lips have never backed away from a good collaboration (2009's The Flaming Lips Doing Dark Side Of The Moon). This new album is 13 songs by the Flaming Lips in conjunction with a Who's Who list of some of the best-known names in contemporary, pop and alt-rock. Some strange pairings? Naturally. Who wouldn't scratch their heads at the prospect of The Flaming Lips and Ke$ha? Or The Flaming Lips and Erykah Badu?

"...the Lips brought a lot of these hard to find team-ups, as well as a host of new collaborations, to the masses with the 2012 release of The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends. Originally released for Record Store Day 2012, the spaced-out compilation has allowed people the opportunity to experience previously hard-to-own tracks such as 'Is David Bowie Dying,' 'Supermoon Made Me Want to Pee,' and 'I'm Working at NASA on Acid?,' which feature Neon Indian, Prefuse 73, and Lightning Bolt, respectively. The compilation also finds the Lips working with a host of guests that runs from the expected (Tame Impala, Plastic Ono Band) to the downright strange (Biz Markie, Ke$ha). The high point of the album is the cover of the iconic 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,' which finds the band working with Erykah Badu to transform the song into a haunting and glacial, 10-minute shoegaze epic. The stunning cover is the most beautiful and cohesive on what is an otherwise (understandably) uneven collection." — All Music Guide
