Amanda Palmer stars in Flaming Lips new NSFW video; Wayne Coyne directing video for Amanda’s new single

Flaming Lips video

You may remember the video for the Flaming Lips and Erykah Badu‘s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” that featured the singer’s sister, Nayrock, writhing around naked in a tub full of glitter, blood and other liquids. Erykah was none too pleased.

Well, the band have gone back to the drawing board, or at least the tub for a new version of the old standard now featuring vocals from Amanda Palmer, who lends herself to the video — au naturel but minus the glitter, blood and other gunk. Needless to say, it’s NSFW and you can watch it below.

Pitchfork notes that Flaming Lips main man Wayne Coyne will work with Palmer again, directing the video for her upcoming single “Do It With a Rock Star” which will take it’s concept from the title, it looks like. Amanda’s new, Kickstarter-funded album, Theatre is Evil, is out September 11 which is the same day as her Webster Hall show to which tickets are still on sale.

Video is below.
