 ‘Where the Viaduct Looms’ comprises nine Nick Cave cover versions with vocals and instrumentation by 14-year-old Nell Smith and instrumentation and production by The Flaming
Lips. The album was mastered by Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios. 
 This inspiring and heart-warming story begin when Smith, originally from Leeds (UK), moved to Canada and first met Wayne Coyne at the age of 12 at The Flaming Lips’ headline show at the Sled Island Festival, Calgary, in 2018 with her family. Nell had already attended several Lips shows and was a regular at the front of the stage, dressed in a parrot costume and screaming out the band’s songs. Coyne soon began to notice the kid in the
parrot suit and sang a David Bowie cover directly to her at the show in Calgary, with Nell singing every word back.
 A musical bond formed with Coyne staying in contact with Nell and her father Jude as she learned to play guitar, while their creative relationship began to flourish when she started to write her own songs.
 When a planned trip to record with the band in Oklahoma had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, Coyne suggested Nell record some Nick Cave songs and email them to Oklahoma to
be backed by the band. Coyne chose Nick Cave because Nell didn’t know him and wouldn’t have preconceived notions as to how to sing the songs.
 LP pressed on blue 140g vinyl in 3mm spined outer sleeve.
