See Flaming Lips’ Trippy ‘Space Oddity’ Video
Band releases cover of David Bowie classic as iTunes single
The Flaming LipsÂ have unveiled their video for “Space Oddity.” For the clip, the band performed the David BowieÂ classic in an Oklahoma City church to a congregation of white balloons, with the group turning the house of worship into a vivid laser light show.
In addition to the video, the Flaming Lips have also released “Space Oddity” as a single-track download on iTunes. The group first covered the track during anÂ eight-song Bowie tributeÂ they performed February in Aspen.
The Flaming Lips were originally scheduledÂ to performÂ their rendition of “Space Oddity” on the March 30th episode of the Late Show With Stephen Colbert when the band was in New York for the Music of David Bowie tributes. However, that performance was bumped to make room for last-minute guest Senator Elizabeth Warren, NewsOK reported in late March. The Flaming Lips will instead take the Ed Sullivan Theatre stage on April 19th.
