The Flaming Lips - "Think Like A Machine" and "Assassin Beetle"

The Flaming Lips Peace Sword

We knew already that the Flaming Lips would have a new track, "Peace Sword (Open Your Heart)," featured in the upcoming film adaptation of Orson Scott Card'sEnder's Game. Turns out they must have really enjoyed writing that song - they've just announced it'll serve as the title track for a whole EP of Ender's Game-inspired music called Peace Sword. You can hear two songs from that EP now, the ominous, otherworldly, weirdly lovely "Think Like A Machine, Not Like A Boy," and the ten-minute EP closer, evil, multivalent drone-fest "Assassin Beetle - The Dream is Ending." You can download the EP digitally October 29 or pick up a copy in a record store on November 29 as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday special. As for the movie, you probably already know that's out November 1.
