3."Helping the Retarded to Find God" (featuring Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros)
The Flaming Lips and Edward Sharpe met up backstage at Lollapalooza's 20th Anniversary celebration last April in Santiago, Chile - watch them in a huddle at the start of this video.
In June 2011 they both played Santa Rosa, California's Harmony Festival and joined together a few days later for a sunrise performance of "Do You Realize???" in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Making the most of the graveyard's bell tower, Lips bassist/ engineer/ multi-instumentalist Michael Ivins rang the Eliza Otis chimes (view a snippet in this video at 0:14).
In the first week of 2012 the Lips began working on a new track with Sharpe in mind. Watch this song gradually take shape over the first few weeks of this year at http://www.facebook.com/TheFutureHeart#!/photo.php?v=330493263667887 or from 2:34 until the end in this video.
