After already working together on The Flaming Lips collaborative LP, ‘Flaming Lips and Heavy Fwends’, it looks like frontman Wayne Coyne is going to return the favour and team up with Ke$ha on one of her own tracks.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Coyne said “I'm talking with Ke$ha about doing some tracks on her new record.” The unlikely duo teamed up on the track ‘2012’ alongside rapper Biz Markie on the L.P due out on 21st April.
"We knew that she was a fan," Coyne stated. "She's a lot of fun and crazy and open to ideas and she's creative. She's all these things that you don't know."
Coyne seems interested in more collaboration with other ‘heavy fwends’ such as Erykah Badu who covered Roberta Flack’s ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ with the band. Coyne says that the key to making unlikely collaborations work is in being open to experimentation. "Sometimes just this idea of trying makes all the difference."
Ke$ha recently revealed that she would introduce the world to 'cock-pop' on her second album.
