Flaming Lips

Following news that they were seeking out acts to collaborate with on their new album, The Flaming Lips have named Bon Iver as the latest of several artists already confirmed to work on said untitled LP. Justin Vernon joins an assorted company that also includes Nick Cave, Death Cab For Cutie and Neon Indian.

Rolling Stone reports that Lykke Li, Erykah Badu and – least likely of all – Ke$ha – also feature on the Lips’ list of desired duet partners. I’ll believe that last one if and when I hear it. The collaborations album is slated for release around Record Store Day, which this year falls on 21 Apr.
