Flaming Lips Rope In Karen O, MGMT and German Mathematician for New Album

Flaming Lips Rope In Karen O, MGMT and German Mathematician for New Album
With that new Flaming Lips album coming up fast, we're starting to get a much clearer picture of what to expect from this double-album monstrosity known as Embryonic. You know, stuff like both MGMT and Karen O will appear on the record.

Head Lip Wayne Coyne recently revealed this tasty morsel of album news in an interview with Swiss website Die Klangschau [via Stereogum].

"We have MGMT doing a song with us and we have Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs doing a couple songs with us," said Coyne. "For the Karen O tracks, I just called her up in her hotel room and we just did it right over the telephone. It's pretty absurd."

Also, O and MGMT aren't the only ones making a guest appearance on Embryonic. "We have this weird mathematician guy from Germany doing some spoken word stuff on the record," Coyne added. And while we're not usually a big fan of the whole spoken-word thing, the thought of possibly hearing some never-ending math equations does sound intriguing.

As previously reported, Embryonic is set for a tentative September release and may or may not come with this cover.
