Wayne Coyne is a rare breed. One of those gifted few who can turn even the wackiest idea into a reality seemingly with only sheer will and a little follow-through. But we know it takes a little bit more work than that. Last year, The Flaming Lips worked with Neon Indian on a 12'' vinyl-only EP, then set out to work with Yoko Ono & The Plastic Ono Band. But he didn't stop there. He also recorded with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Bad Seeds frontman, Nick Cave.
Not one to take a break from his creative undertakings, Coyne recently set out to make some sweet melodies with Bon Iver [Oh yay!] and even crafted a wishlist of other musicians he hopes to work with, including: Lykke Li, Erykah Badu and..[perhaps oddest of all] Ke$ha.
He's hoping to have the multi-artist LP out sometime in April, and it seems like a very reachable timeframe considering all the hardwork he and the Lips put into their 6-hour 'Found A Star On The Ground', and then subsequently 24-hour: '7 Skies H3' song.
In the meantime, check out their joint-effort with Neon Indian.
