Due to High Expectations... The Flaming Lips are Providing Needles for Your Balloons (usually referred to as Providing Needles for Your Balloons) is a compilation EP released by the American rock group The Flaming Lips in 1994.
According to the band's website, it was released because there had been new albums in 1992 and 1993, but there would not be in 1994, thus the fans were expecting new Lips material. This is probably due to the success of Transmissions from the Satellite Heart and the band's extensive promotion of that album. The EP is a collection of demos, live recordings, and covers. Due to the length of the tracks and the number of them, the EP runs as long as a full album. The artwork reflects the graphic themes of Transmissions from the Satellite Heart.
