Because, let’s face it; we mindless pop culture consumers don’t know what the hell we even want until somebody up there tells us what we want: Wayne “Don’t Trust Anyone Over Sixty!” Coyne and his fellow executives over at Flaming Lips Inc. (whom you may remember from…oh, some thirty-odd years in the Rock Music biz.), have just announced a new split-EP with the current-reigning Canadian psych-meister Mac “Hats Rule” DeMarco.

In the truest punk rock fashion, the new joint release will reportedly feature the Lips covering three of DeMarco’s tunes, as well as something referred to (at least by Coyne) as “the Mac DeMarco afternoon delight ensemble” covering three of Coyne n’ Co’s songs as well (gotta admit that the chill-ass strains of “Chewin’ the Apple of Yer Eye” or “It’s Summertime” would probably sound right-at-home burbling up from DeMarco’s smooth, easygoin’ larynx).

Coyne himself announced this sensational new mega-collaboration via Instagram by posting a clip that shows him (or at least one of the many extremely life-like Coyne-bots at his disposal) working on “Chamber of Reflection,” from DeMarco’s 2014 album Salad Days. Guess all this totes heady newz kinda makes some sense, timing-wise, though; the two are also touring together in a few weeks (so presumably, the release will be on-hand by then?). Until then, scope out the tour dates below the vid…and be sure to hold a space open on your year-end-lists.
