The bands tinker with each other's tunes
The song will be available to download from August 14 and will be
released as a limited edition double a-side 7” on September 4.
“I’ve got this big thing about The Flaming Lips at the moment,”
said Alison Goldfrapp of the collaboration. “I mean, who hasn’t? I met Wayne Coyne last year and he was utterly charming of course, and their show was amazing. It’s an exhilarating combination of the magical and the resolutely rinky-dink home made. I just loved it.”
Regarding working on the remix, Wayne Coyne said: “I believe we veered towards a Nina Simone meets Radiohead kind of mood. It was truly a joy to experiment with her lovely voice.”
The release will also feature Goldfrapp’s revamp of The Ordinary Boys single ’Boys Will Be Boys’.
As previously reported on NME.COM, Goldfrapp will headline this year’s Eden Sessions which takes place on August 25 at Cornwall’s Eden Project.
