The ever quirky The Flaming Lips and even stranger songstress Ke$ha have announced that they will be recording a track about ‘futuristic sex toys’. Okay then. Ke$ha is just another artist that The Flaming Lips have collaborated with recently, joining the list that includes; Bon Iver, Mastodon and a stack others. These collaborations are in aid of their forthcoming release ‘The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends’ which is due for release this Record Store Day.
Taking to twitter, Wayne Coyne said “Ha ha!! @keshasuxx doin a freaky new song about futuristic sex toys!!!”. As crazy as this sounds, it’s not surprising that such a strange inspiration is a result of these two artists talking.
