Flaming Lips to Collaborate With Justin Vernon on Album
The Flaming Lips are finishing up a collaborative album that will feature Bon Iver, Rolling Stone reports. It’s among a string of interesting collaborations the band’s done with artists that include Neon Indian, Yoko Ono and Lightning Bolt.
Wayne Coyne told Rolling Stone that, along with Bon Iver, the album should feature Nick Cave, Edward Sharpe, Neon Indian and Yoko Ono. Although it doesn’t have a release date, Coyne is hoping it will hit the shelves in April. Some of the collaborations have been tracked already, not including Vernon’s appearance, but Coyne said the collaboration is definitely happening.
“All these things happen within a couple of days,” Coyne told the magazine about tracking the album. “You set up these [collaborations] in your mind and immediately get to work.”
But those aren’t the only collaborations Coyne is hoping for for the new album. The frontman is also hoping for Lykke Li, Erykah Badu and Ke$ha —yes, “Tik Tok” Ke$ha— who Coyne is hoping will do a “weird rap” of some sort.
