Band previously worked with US pop star on their album 'The Flaming Lips And Heavy Fwends'
The unlikely collaborators have worked together before, both on Flaming Lips material and on Ke$ha’s 2012 album ‘Warrior’, however a joint album would mark the first time they have worked on anything full-length together. Speaking to Spin about Ke$ha, Wayne Coyne said: “She is a blast on all levels. She’s funny, she’s humble. She’s badass. She’s everything. She’s awesome. We’re actually already working on an album with her. It’s called Lip$ha.”
Asked if he still has the blood that Ke$ha gave him to include in the packaging of ‘The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends’ album when it was released in April 2012, Coyne replied that he did, adding: “It’s very glittery. It came out of [her] vagina that way. That’s the truth.”
Ke$ha recruited a number of musicians from the worlds of rock and indie music for ‘Warrior’, working with Julian Casablancas and Fab Moretti of The Strokes as well as Iggy Pop and The Black Keys. The ‘Tik Tok’ singer previously claimed that she would collaborate with The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards or “die trying” to make it happen, saying: “Keith Richards is the end-all and be-all for me. I’m gonna keep trying to work with him until the day I die probably.”
