Flying Lotus Set to Collaborate on Next Thom Yorke Solo Album

Flying Lotus Set to Collaborate on Next Thom Yorke Solo Album
When we first got word of Flying Lotus's upcoming new album, Cosmogramma, we were more than a little pumped. But when we found out that Thom Yorke was going to guest on the record it quickly became one of our most anticipated albums of the year.

In a recent interview with BBC 6 Music, Flying Lotus - whose ID reads Steven Ellison - spoke about working with the Radiohead front-man on the Cosmogramma track "...And the World Laughs With You," and it seems that the pair may have some more future collaborations in the works.

"It's weird, him and I. We were born on the same day and we keep having these strange, but really positive meetings," Ellison said of Yorke. "Now we've done this song on my record and I only wonder what's going to happen next?"

FlyLo then went on to say that he may soon return the favour and guest on Yorke's next solo effort. "I might make a contribution or two to the next Thom Yorke album," he said. "Maybe do a remix or something. We'll see. I don't want to jump the gun or anything but I think it's going to keep going."

At this point, we've heard basically zilch about a new Thom Yorke record, but another does seem likely, especially considering that he's launching a tour with his new side band, Atoms of Peace, which is made up of Flea, Nigel Godrich, percussionist Mauro Refosco and drummer Joey Waronker. Conveniently enough, Flying Lotus are also opening that tour.

In the meantime, get set for Cosmogramma to drop on Warp Records on May 4. Flying Lotus also have some solo North American tour dates, including one in Montreal on March 25. You can see the full list here.
