Ground control should be pleased to know The Flaming Lips have released a video of cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
In February, the band covered the song in tribute to Bowie as part of a set of his greatest hits.
In the video, two nuns deliver flowers to a grave while the band performs to a congregation of sad-looking matte gray balloons, until everything goes psychedelic. It was filmed at Crestwood Vineyard Church in Oklahoma City.
The Flaming Lips recently participated in in the first Music of David Bowie tribute concert at Carnegie Hall. Vocalist Wayne Coyne sang “Life on Mars?” while sitting atop the shoulders of someone dressed as Chewbacca, adding to the “Bowie-ness” of it all.
