Foxygen Unveil Guests for '…And Star Power,' Get the Flaming Lips, Of Montreal

Foxygen Unveil Guests for '…And Star Power,' Get the Flaming Lips, Of Montreal
As California-based psych rockers Foxygen gear up for the release of their massive new LP, …And Star Power, due next month, the band casually revealed in a tweet this morning (September 10) that their new record is aptly named.

As the band confirmed, the "star power" being employed on the album ranges from the understandable (melodic rockers Bleached and the ever-prolific White Fence) to matches made in heaven (contemporary psych-pop heroes Of Montreal and the Flaming Lips) to the bizarre (author Carson Mell who has no documented musical output). 

The Flaming Lips collaboration should come as no surprise: Foxygen's Jonathan Rado appeared on their 2013 Stone Roses cover album, The Time Has Come to Shoot You Down… What a Sound, and the full group will appear on the Lips' upcoming Beatles cover album,With a Little Help From My Fwends.

According to the tweet, there are more guests to come. There are also no details as to which artists appear on which songs; given the double LP's 24-song tracklist, the appearances are anyone's guess. …And Star Power comes out October 14 on Jagjaguwar.
