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.”

  1. The Flaming Lips collaboration with Yoko Ono was my favorite holiday release last year, with a close second being Kate Bush’s Fifty Words For Snow.
