Flaming Lips frontman has made seven-song album with US pop star
Wayne Coyne has said that he and Miley Cyrus have recorded a seven-song album together that has been compared to both Pink Floyd and Portishead.
Cyrus previously collaborated with Flaming Lips, covering the Beatles ‘A Day in the Life’ with the psychedelic band but a mini album would represent their most comprehensive work together.
In a new interview with Billboard, Coyne confirmed the joint album plan and answered the question of how his and Cyrus’ music sounds; “Some of it reminds me of Pink Floyd and Portishead.”
“Her studio is just a little room with a desk and Miley was just sitting there mixing,” Coyne said of Cyrus home studio on Los Angeles. The pair also record at Flaming Lips’ Oklahoma studio. “I was like, ‘I can’t picture Beyoncé doing this!’ It’s not a putdown of Beyoncé. I just don’t see her recording her own vocals and then EQ’ing it. It’s so punk rock!”
The pop singer has also been in the studio with producer Mike WiLL Made it, who produced the majority of her fourth album ‘Bangerz’, released in October 2013. She recently shared a snippet of a new song and the caption written by Cyrus beneath the video suggested it was related to hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd. The two brothers released their debut album ‘Sremm Life’ at the start of this year. Listen to the clip below.
Cyrus was just in the news after she posted the phone number of Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton in protest at comments he made regarding Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
