New Erykah Badu/Flaming Lips Track Samples Siri, Sounds Fucking Trippy
The saga continues: From the Internet ether comes the (partial) fruits of that Erykah Badu/Flaming Lips collaboration we talked about a few weeks ago.
"Now I Understand" sounds about right coming from the left/right brains of these two. Ambient, heavy-lidded, soulful and it features a sample of Siri's vocals. (The Apple voice-recognition bot, not Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' "child," though I'd probably listen to Erykah duet with either of them.) It's a straight-up 2001: A Space Odyssey jam.
The track will be available on a compilation Wayne Coyne's putting out for Record Store Day. Check it out, droids.
