Exclaim! is reporting that in a recent Reddit AMA session, ‘Animal’ Wayne Coyne let it be known that not only do The Flaming Lips have an album coming out April 16 (titled The Terror, courtesy of Warner Bros./Bella Union), but another, more refined musical endeavor is also on the horizon. Coyne queefed the glitter-covered and booze-soaked nugget of news that the Lips will be putting out a full-length collaboration with the stuttering, ghost-fucking, dinosaur aping Warrior herself, Ke$ha.
The Flaming Lips and Ke$ha have worked together before, though, first on TFL’s duets album from 2012, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, then on Ke$ha’s most recent album Warrior, with the Lips overseeing a single track from the otherwise Dr. Luke and Max Martin-produced album. Wayne noted of Ke$ha (née Kesha Rose Sebert) that, “She’s funny, she’s humble. She’s badass. She’s everything. She’s awesome.” Note to readers: if you want to impress Wayne Coyne, give him a vial of your blood.
No release date was announced, but we did learn that the album will be cleverly named Lip$ha. Expect songs about robots, cannibalism, filth, and you just being you. Hey, maybe the two artists actually have way more in common than originally thought…
For all the rabid Ke$ha fans who frequent TMT, my buddy who recently did a drag performance of a Ke$ha track at a house party that included Jurassic Park-themed props (think small cup of water) and back up dancers in t-rex masks pointed me to two unreleased Ke$ha tracks, both below. Blah, blah, blah, enjoy.
