Miley Cyrus Gives An Update On Flaming Lips Collaborations
What the fuck are Miley Cyrus and Wayne Coyne doing in that Instagram photo up there? Shooting porn? According to Rolling Stone, the fearless freaks’ friendship has been blossoming in other ways lately: clubbing, getting lip tattoos together, checking out 2 Chainz in concert. Cyrus also says she’s writing material for her next record with the Flaming Lips, with whom she already performed “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1″ on stage and collaborated on a Beatles cover in the studio. The plan is to start recording as soon as her Bangerz tour is finished. Cyrus sounds pumped about the prospect of real live instruments on her next record, so maybe she and noted Coyne nemesis Win Butler would also get along. (OK, probably not.) Here’s what she had to say about this whole Lips business:
On my last record, everything we did was with computers. But they’re real musicians — they can change keys on a whim. I’ve never seen anything like it. They’ve had me on this journey that’s greater than anything I’ve been on. It’s really deep.
Although I find Coyne’s recent antics increasingly distasteful, I’m at least a little curious to hear what their music with Cyrus sounds like. They did make The Soft Bulletin, and the girl can sing, so there’s an outside chance it will be revelatory. It will probably be garbage, though, and seriously, that photo creeps me out.
