Watch The Flaming Lips and Nels Cline Cover The Beatles

This morning, George Salisbury (director, graphic designer and all-around visual guru for the Flaming Lips) tweeted a link to a new live Lips video. Shot during the band’s New Year’s Eve set in Oklahoma City, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline joins the Flaming Lips for a 17-minute version of The Beatles’ “I Want You (She’s So Heavy).” Cline can even be seen wearing a Lennon-Ono “War Is Over”-inspired shirt.

Like Salisbury said, the droning, psychedelic, and totally righteous cover is sure to “melt yer brain!!” Check it out below.
