    The Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus Plot Trippy Collaborative LP
    "Some of it reminds me of Pink Floyd and Portishead," Lips singer Wayne Coyne says of seven-track set

    The Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus are continuing their weird sonic friendship with an upcoming collaborative LP. The seven-track album was co-written by the psychedelic rock band and pop star during the past year and is currently being mixed by Lips members Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, Billboard reports. "She does the pop thing so great, so it still feels pop, but a slightly wiser, sadder, more true version," Coyne said of the set. "Some of it reminds me of Pink Floyd and Portishead."

    The unlikely partnership began in early 2014, when Cyrus – a huge Lips fan – tweeted a birthday greeting to Coyne. In response, the frontman sent his phone number and the two realized they shared a surreal approach to art and life. "We've just been getting in each other's worlds," Coyne said. "We text every day – sometimes three times, sometimes a thousand."

    Coyne has been impressed with Cyrus' commitment to the music, which was written and recorded in "stripped-down, DIY fashion" at the band's studio and Cyrus' Los Angeles home. "Her studio is just a little room with a desk, and Miley was sitting there mixing," the Lips singer said. "I was like, 'I can't picture Beyoncé doing this!' It's not a putdown on Beyoncé. I just don't see her recording her own vocals and then EQ'ing it. It's so punk rock!"

    The as-yet-untitled album currently has no release date, but will be the latest in several collaborations between the singer and the group. Cyrus added vocals to two Beatles covers – "With a Little Help From My Friends" and "A Day in the Life" – from the Lips' 2014 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band tribute, With a Little Help From My Fwends. They teamed up to perform the latter track last year on Conan, and Cyrus also appeared in the band's trippy art video "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain."

    Music needs to be laid to rest. It's over, Johnny. Miley Cyrus? It's over.

    Just when you think you couldn't care less about an upcoming album, you get news that proves you wrong.

    I'm holding out for that compelling Henry Rollins- Lady Gaga collaboration.

    Maybe this will come full circle and some DJ will play this music at ultra. Current music couldn't suck worse than it already does.

    The Candlebox/Taylor Swift album will be even better than that.

    Pathetic! Each wants what the other has: one seems desperate for hipster cred and the other is probably desperate for some actual sales. I kind of feel bad for Miley. She is very good at being famous, and even has some actual music talent, but she was born with a chipmunk voice that is nowhere near sexy or cool.

    Rush is extremely talented, and they were on the verge of getting dropped by their label before 2112. They struggled a lot. 'Miley Cyrus' gets a job with Disney pimping crap to tweeners, and is instantly a 'star' after a few shit pop songs. And the idiot at Billboard says the album reminds him of Pink Floyd? Stick a fork in music.

    This is the impression I get. Why else would Flaming Lips work with her? It could never be art for art's sake. It's for money, fame, a bigger draw on tour. Sellout move. This seems to be the philosophy these days with these frequent "collaborations". You can gain some of my fans and I can gain some of yours.

    I guess it might be hard sometimes....what do I want more......money or integrity? Some people are capable of both at the same time, but it seems very few these days.
