Phantogram has been on quite an impressive roll lately, and it looks like they’re about to take it up a couple of notches with their latest endeavor – collaborating with the Flaming Lips.
Saratoga’s fave electro-pop couple spent last New Year’s Eve in Oklahoma City, sharing the stage with Wayne Coyne & Co. at the Lips’ annual New Year’s Freak Out bash. And obviously Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter made quite an impression…
The Lips’ new album – the double-vinyl “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends,” slated for release on Saturday, April 21 (Record Store Day) – is apparently chockful of collaborations (Ke$ha? Coldplay? Bon Iver?), although the full list of musical partners has yet to be officially revealed.
But according to an interview with Coyne on Pitchfork, the collaboration with Phantogram is a shoe-in to make it onto the album.
In the interview, Coyne describes the collaboration, “It’s a real fuckin’ somber, strange song about lusting for success and the things that you want in your life.”
