Listen: Flaming Lips Do “Sad and Beautiful World” for Sparklehorse Tribute

I told you about the Sparklehorse/ Mark Linkous tribute album, Last Box of Sparklers, previously and gave you a taste with a Mercury Rev track off it. Also on the album are Mark Lanegan, Califone, Joy Formidable, Phantogram and others.

Now we get a cover of “Sad and Beautiful World” by the Flaming Lips. The original appeared on the first Sparklehorse album, Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot.

The non-profit Box of Stars is currently raising money via Indiegogo to release the album and, ultimately to increase awareness about mental health issues.
