Lana Del Rey to collaborate with Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator?
Unlikely pair take to Twitter to express an interest in working together
The pair recently both took to their official Twitter pages expressing an interest in working with each other, with Tyler writing:
Just Found Out Lana Del Ray Wanted To Work With Me. Had No Idea. If Your Reading This Im Down, I Have Pretty Instrumentals— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) March 29, 2012
Del Rey then later replied and told the rapper he was "Number 1" in her eyes.
Earlier this week, Odd Future kicked off their current UK and Ireland tour with gigs at O2 Academy Birmingham (March 28) and London's O2 Academy Brixton. The jaunt continues tonight (31) in Manchester, before moving on to Glasgow tomorrow (1) and concluding in Dublin on Monday (2).
The band also opened their latest pop up shop on the capital's Brick Lane, where they met fans and sold their merchandise. To read a full behind-the-scenes report from the opening - including an exclusive interview with Tyler and other members of the group - pick up next week's issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally from next Wednesday (April 4).
Meanwhile, in another odd hook-up, Del Rey was recently photographed with Marilyn Manson and Barry Manilow after the Echo Awards in Germany, leading to speculation that she is dating the self-styled God Of Fuck.
She is due to play at this year's Latitude Festival over the weekend of July 12–15 in Suffolk's Henham Park, along with the Isle Of Wight Festival and Radio 1's Big Weekend in Hackney.
