The band have previously announced that they will be releasing their multitude of collaborations as a Record Store Day compilation, and today they've detailed the compilation in full.
The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends will be released on April 21st and will be pressed on two multi-color 12" vinyl discs that will come packaged in two custom art jackets and bagged together. The limited-edition release sees The Flaming Lips collaborating with 13 different artists, including previously heard collaborations with Neon Indian, Prefuse 73 and Lightning Bolt.

The single will be available exclusively for Record Store Day as part of the Side by Side 2012 Series. On one side will be The Flaming Lips' "Spoonful Weighs a Ton," while the opposite side will be Mastadon's cover of the same song.
