The Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne has revealed that he could feature on Ke$ha's second album.

The 'Tik Tok' singer is one of the many star-studded collaborators who has contributed to the Lips' Record Store Day project 'The Flaming Lips And Heavy Fwends' and, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Coyne said that he could now return the favour by working with Ke$ha on her next LP.

He said:

I'm talking with Ke$ha about doing some tracks on her new record. We knew that she was a fan. She's a lot of fun and crazy and open to ideas and she's creative. She's all these things that you don't know.


Coyne, who also said he was eager to record a collaboration with TV On The Radio and Diplo, revealed earlier this week (March 27) that they will be using the blood of some of the contributors to 'The Flaming Lips And Heavy Fwends' in the a limited-edition run of packaging. Apparently Coyne has so far collected blood from Neon Indian, Prefuse 73 and Ke$ha. Only five or six blood discs will be made and, says the singer, will likely be bought by "interested rich Flaming Lips people".

Other names to feature on the album include Bon Iver, Nick Cave and Erykah Badu. To listen to the band's collaboration with Bon Iver, titled 'Ashes In The Air', scroll down to the bottom of the page and click.

Ke$ha, meanwhile, is currently working on the follow-up to her 2010 LP 'Animal'. Earlier this month (March 14), she boldly proclaimed that the new record would usher in the dawn of a new genre called "cock pop". Although she didn't reveal what the new musical movement would entail, it isn't the first time she has discussed phalluses in public. Last month (February 2), she claimed that she makes her assistant dress up in a penis outfit to cheer her up when she is upset.
