The Flaming Lips have reached out to some of their "fwends", including 'Tik Tok' singer Ke$ha, to release a limited edition double album.

The band will release the record on April 21, to coincide with Record Store Day. Wayne Coyne's band have teamed up with a variety of artists including Bon Iver, Yoko Ono, Nick Cave, My Morning Jacket and Coldplay's Chris Martin for the record.

'The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends', which will be released on a double multi-coloured vinyl set, contains new recordings and songs that have appeared on the band's recent EPs.

There will only be one, limited pressing of the album as the band have said they will not be making any more copies of the rare release. According to the press release, the album documents "a series of unique and experimental sessions".
