The Flaming Lips are aiming to release a song every month this year and the band are thinking of releasing the new material via the unorthodox medium of toys.

Frontman Wayne Coyne confirmed the move, telling Rolling Stone:

‘With this new thing, we're going to spend a lot of time recording at our houses or wherever we are at. ‘We'll try to release a song a month and document the song in the making, whether it takes us three or five days or a week. It's gonna be, 'We're working on a song and it's gonna be up by Friday'. We just want to [release new material] some other way.

‘The dilemma is whether we're going to release it on vinyl, cereal boxes or some of it on toys that we make,’ he added. ‘I've been dealing with a guy who flies to China and Korea six times a year and he's always making these new fantastic looking toys and having companies manufacture them.’

The band is also planning to release videos along with each individual song, aiming to provide ‘a bigger movie’ of the project.
