MGMT, Karen O guest on new Flaming Lips album
MGMT and Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O make guest appearances on The Flaming Lips' next album, frontman Wayne Coyne has revealed.

The US band are set to release a a double album, 'Embryonic' in the autumn. The release date is strongly tipped to be October 12, though this is yet to be officially confirmed.

"We have MGMT doing a song with us and we have Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs doing a couple songs with us," frontman Wayne Coyne told Swiss music site Die Klangschau of the band's guests. "For the Karen O tracks, I just called her up in her hotel room and we just did it right over the telephone. It's pretty absurd."

Coyne added that the two acts weren't the only guests on the album.

"We have this weird mathematician guy from Germany doing some spoken word stuff on the record," he added.

The band are set to play a series of UK live dates in November.

The Flaming Lips will play:

London Troxy (November 10, 11)
Portsmouth Guildhall (13)
Glasgow O2 Academy (15)
Manchester Academy (16)
Birmingham Academy (17)
