Last week, The Oklahoma State Legislature voted to name "Do You Realize??" by THE FLAMING LIPS as "The Official Oklahoma State Rock and Roll Song."
This honor is the culmination of a nearly two-year process. Nominations for the rock song were collected from February to July 2008. More than 2,498 nominations were submitted for 458 songs.
Hey, there's more good news! ... THE FLAMING LIPS are beginning work this month on their follow-up to At War With The Mystics, recording once again with long-time sonic collaborator David Fridmann. The new album is expected this summer.
