Much like everyone else The Flaming Lips are set to release an exclusive set of songs for next month’s upcoming Record Store Day celebration. Unlike everyone else the compilation features an all-star set of guest contributors including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Nick Cave, Neon Indeon, Yoko Ono, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Erykah Badu, and-ahem-Ke$ha.

Also on the list is Bon Iver, whose included track “Ashes In the Air” has made its way online to stream. You can give the song a listen below, as well as view the entire compilation’s tracklisting. In typical Flaming Lips fashion it’s also been reported that Wayne Coyne is actually collecting blood from his fellow collaborators with the hope of packaging them in select copies of the record. In an interview with MTV Hive, Coyne said, “I don’t have everybody’s blood just yet, but I collected quite a few vials of blood and it’s actually sitting in my refrigerator as we speak.”
