While it sounds like there's an orchestra on the original recording of The Flaming Lips 1999 masterpiece, The Soft Bulletin, the string sounds were actually recorded using synthesizers and samples. Nearly two decades later, in 2016, the band joined the Colorado Symphony to play the album live in its entirety at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. It was the first time the Lips performed The Soft Bulletin with an orchestra. The band just announced Friday that the live recording of that concert will be released on November 29. It will be the Lips first official live album. Album pre-orders begin Friday, October 18 and will include an instant download of "Race for the Prize" from the album that features the 69-piece Colorado Symphony and 56-person Colorado Symphony Chorus and was conducted by internationally celebrated conductor André de Ridder.
