The Flaming Lips & Ke$ha – “2012… You Must Be Upgraded”

By Scott Lapatine / April 21, 2012 - 9:19 pm

Speaking of the Flaming Lips and Record Store Day, one of today’s most anticipated releases was the collaborative LP The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends. You’ve heard cuts featuring Bon Iver, New Fumes, Prefuse 73, and others. Now you can lay your ears on the Doctor Who-sampling, apocalyptic Heady Fwends Ke$ha collab below.

Wayne Coyne enjoyed working with the “TiK ToK” singer so much, the two have already collaborated on another song “about futuristic sex toys” possibly slated for her sophomore LP. And don’t forget Ke$ha gave Wayne her blood, and he let her give him a foot tattoo. BFFs, clearly. “The world would be a better place if there were armies of Ke$has out there,” he told MTV earlier this month. “Being around her and knowing her, I’ve learned just how awesome she is. If more musicians and artists could be like her and stop being so superior and precious and entitled, art would be so much more fun.”

The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends was released today via Warner Bros. Copies have already sold on eBay for $99.
