Miley Cyrus to Write and Record Album With Flaming Lips
0
Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips have gotten really close over the past few months, and will now take their relationship a step further with a full-on studio collaboration.

During a brand new Rolling Stone interview, Miley confirmed writing songs with the band for her next album and will join her in the studio as soon as she wraps up her current Bangerz tour.

"On my last record, everything we did was with computers," Cyrus said. "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."

As reported, Miley and Flaming Lips have already shared stage on two occasions. Furthermore, they have also spent some time in the studio together as a part of the band's "Sgt. Peppers" cover album, with Cyrus performing vocal parts on two tracks - "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" and "A Day in the Life."

    "On my last record, everything we did was with computers,". Not surprised.

    Wow, that's SO different to what every other eye candy popstar does with their music(!)

    "They can change keys on a whim, I've never seen anything like it" I think that says it all.

    I would usually criticise people for writing these kinds of comments but I actually kind of agree. Nobody on UG really seems to enjoy articles about Miley Cyrus.

    I care about The Flaming Lips though.

    Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots and At War With the Mystics are amazing albums, but I haven't care for The Flaming Lips since.

    I was pretty impressed by The Terror. But I also think Yoshimi was their peak.

    Frankly, I am not surprised, given the amount of time they've been spending together as of late. If you leave your dog beside The Flaming Lips for 5 minutes, they'll make music with him, and the dog will be the singer. On the other hand, I'd also not be surprised if this turned out to be just another one of their pranks. Shit, now I'm confused.

    Every album the Lips released from The Soft Bulletin to Embryonic was great. since then they've been ****ing around with stupid shit (the new song in the gummy skull, the 24 hour song, Heady Fwends) and their last album was just boring unless you're a hardcore fan. I wish they would just put out a decent album. This Miley/Lips album will be the Lulu of alternative rock.

    Except Lou Reed and Metallica are/were respectable musicians. In this case, only The Flaming Lips are. I have no respect for Miley as a musician personally

    These guys are clearly out of ideas. They were gonna do a collaboration album with Kesha at one point as well. What exactly are they trying to prove?

    What makes me sad is that the original plan was to do an album with Kesha, and I believe they had a lot of work done on it, but her producer said no and there was no way to get around that. I'll probably get slammed for this but she'd be a great rocker and in fact she wants to be, but her label will only let her be the party girl.

    "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." your dad can probably do that too.
