The music video for Erykah Badu and The Flaming Lips‘ stellar cover of Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” can be summed up in four words: glitter, blood, jizz and tits. There are, however, a few other things to note: It is very amazing. It co-stars Erykah’s very naked sister Nayrok Badu. It is very NSFW.
Also: the song is included on The Flaming Lips’ Record Store Day album The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, which is being re-released on June 26 by Warner Bros.
UPDATE: Since the allegedly premature release of the video by the Flaming Lips, an online Twitter feud has erupted between their camp and Erykah’s regarding what the final version of the video should have been. Read Erykah’s heated personal response here. You can find the rest on the Twittersphere.
