The Flaming Lips on Oct. 29 will release “Peace Sword,” a new six-song EP featuring music inspired by the upcoming film “Ender’s Game,” which hits theaters Nov. 1 and features Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford. The title track “Peace Sword (Open Your Heart)” was written exclusively for the film, while the remaining five tracks were all inspired by the book upon which the film is based, as well as the motion picture itself.
“Peace Sword” will be made available by all digital retailers on Oct. 29. The CD and limited-edition 12″ vinyl release will follow on Black Friday/Record Store Day, which falls on Nov. 29. The vinyl package features the same audio content as the CD, but features different artwork. It will be pressed on black, standard-weight vinyl with a “dazzling ‘LIPSian’ gatefold sleeve,” according to a press release from the band’s record label, Warner Bros. Records.
The track-listing for “Peace Sword”:
Peace Sword (“Open Your Heart”)
If They Move, Shoot ‘Em
Is The Black At The End Good
Think Like A Machine, Not A Boy
Assassin Beetle – The Dream Is Ending
