The Vault: The Flaming Lips - 'Race For The Prize'

Time for another edition of a brand new feature. While Track Of The Day brings you new music and Rewind takes you back 20 years, The Vault deals in amazing songs from random points in musical history. RW/FF will keep these posts short and sweet, with only a small bit of basic info. All you have to do is press 'play' and enjoy. 

Here's another track that reminds me of autumn nights. I presume that it's because I bought the Flaming Lips album that featured this track in the autumn of 1999. One of my favourite songs from the late 90's, the glorious 'Race For The Prize' was released as a single in 1999, and went to number 39 in the UK singles chart. It was taken from the classic album 'The Soft Bulletin', released the same year. The album was released to massive critical acclaim, and was a departure from their previous alternative rock sound, venturing into marvellously rich symphonic arrangements and melodic dream-pop sounds.
