Tame Impala and Flaming Lips are set to record an EP together.

The band will cover two of each others' tracks for a four-track vinyl EP, which will be sold at the shows the bands are joint headlining in October and November in Boston, Philadelphia, New York and Columbia.

"...doing a Tame Impala does Flaming Lips songs and Flaming Lips do Tame Impala songs 4 song vinyl!!," Wayne Coyne wrote on Instagram under a photo of lyrics to Tame Impala's track "Runway, Houses, City, Clouds".

Pitchfork report that for the EP, Flaming Lips have covered Australian psych rockers' 'Runway, Houses, City, Clouds' and Tame Impala appear to be doing The Flaming Lips' 'Are You a Hypnotist?' and 'Silver Trembling Hands' – covers they have recently been testing out in a live setting.

Tame Impala's Kevin Parker recently admitted the idea of recording a follow-up to 2012's 'Lonerism' doesn't excite him. Asked what the next album will sound like, Parker responded: "Right now, doing another album doesn't excite me. There's something narrow-minded about thinking an album is the only way you can put out music, especially in the world we're in at the moment. Anything is possible. There's so many people doing interesting things with the internet and technology, there could be so many ways of making music and listening to it."

Flaming Lips meanwhile, are working on an "extended play 6 song thang.." to go with the track they've written for the upcoming film adaptation of military science fiction novel [i]Enders game[/a], Coyne recently tweeted.
