The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne has spoken about the progress of the band's collaboration with Nick Cave, stating they've already recorded one "really good" song together.

The duo have been speaking about a hook-up since they both appeared at this year's Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona in May.

Coyne told Pitchfork that they're planning to work on more material after Cave finishes touring later this year, adding:

I think we'll get a good Nick Cave collection of songs with the Flaming Lips. We already have one really good one, so that seems like it'll work out.


The frontman also spoke about working on material with Death Cab For Cutie and Deerhoof, before revealing a wishlist of other people he'd like to collaborate with in the future.

"Lykke Li - I love the way she sings. We're trying to do something with her, and she seems interested. I wanna do something with Ke$ha, even. I'm up for anything," he said.

Meanwhile, The Flaming Lips are preparing to release a 24-hour long track tomorrow (October 31) to coincide with Halloween.

The song, titled '7 Skies H3', will be embedded in a hard drive inside 13 actual human skulls topped with chrome drips - and sold for a cool $5,000 (£3,100) a pop.

The band will also stream the track online from midnight in the US tonight and 5am in the UK tomorrow at flaminglipstwentyfourhoursong.com.
