The Flaming Lips Perform Bubble-Wrapped Version of ‘Race For The Prize’ on ‘Colbert’: Watch

If you’ve lived with The Flaming Lips, you’ll know they live in a bubble. A psychedelic bubble, never quite touching the ground.

On Wednesday night (June 10), Wayne Coyne and Co. were up to their magical tricks when they Zoomed in to Stephen Colbert’s Late Show for a performance of “Race For The Prize,” originally a single lifted from their 1999 album The Soft Bulletin.

This being a global pandemic where social distancing is paramount, Coyne, his bandmates and the audience got to work inside giant inflatable bubbles, a staple from the group’s live shows.

Classy move, and very Flaming Lips.

Bubble-wrapped concerts probably aren’t the future. But on the Flaming Lips’ planet, that’s how socially distant gigs are done.

The veteran psychedelic-rock outfit recently contributed to the debut Deap Vally album, a collaborative project with Los Angeles duo Deap Vally.

Check out the “Race For The Prize” performance below.
