Flaming Lips’ Ke$ha collaboration is really happening

Flaming Lips

The headline sort of says it all… but I’ll elaborate somewhat by saying that proof has emerged of a partnership between The Flaming Lips and US electro-pop tart Ke$ha.

Already rumoured to be courting the ‘Tik Tok’ singer to appear on their album of collaborations with other artists (which also features Bon Iver, Neon Indian and Nick Cave), Wayne Coyne et al and have since shared a number of videos proving that it’s all, in fact, true. They posted a bizarre series of photos and in-studio clips in which Ke$ha is seen at work on several psychedelic Lips confections, while Coyne tweeted: “She’s crazy… But shit! She can really fucking SING!”

Wow, an endorsement that’s inappropriate on so many levels. And yet, accurate in parts. That’s assuming he means that Ke$ha is shit.
