The Flaming Lips Team Up with Nick Cave

Wayne Coyne reveals that the group are working with Bad Seeds frontman and others

In the wake of 24-hour song 7 Skies H3 streaming online for Halloween, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has revealed the group are currently in the process of a number of collaborations – which includes Grinderman and Bad Seeds leader Nick Cave.

In an interview with Pitchfork, Coyne stated:

“We’ve done a couple of things with Nick Cave, but he’s on tour right now so it won’t be until after November that he’s able to do more. But I think we’ll get a good Nick Cave collection of songs with the Flaming Lips. We already have one really good one, so that seems like it’ll work out.”

Grinderman will be touring Australia at the beginning of December, with Nick Cave returning to his office to write the eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2008 Bad Seeds record Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! after that.

Other artists and bands that The Flaming Lips have initiated collaborations with include Death Cab for Cutie, No Age and Deerhoof. The band are also interested in working with U.S. pop star Ke$ha:

“I wanna do something with Ke$ha, even. I’m up for anything.”

A limited edition release of all the songs is looking to be released in time for April 2012′s Record Store Day.
