Over the past few years, The Flaming Lips have made some interesting choices in how they create their vinyl albums. In 2012, for Record Store Day, the packaging for their album included the actual blood of contributors to the project, including Kesha and Erykah Badu. While that’s pretty hard to top, in 2018, the band continued their trend of weird vinyls, with the band pressing their album using a custom Dogfish Head beer. However, in an interview with NME, the Flaming Lips frontman, Wayne Coyne, has another absurd idea up his sleeve, and it involves Miley Cyrus’ pee.
Coyne told NME that he hoped to have a record pressed with Miley Cyrus’ urine, adding,
You can’t really up the ante too much from human blood. … The beer was made especially for the Flaming Lips and has our influence in its taste and color. That’s not as insane as having a little bit of Erykah Badu, and Chris Martin’s blood in your records. Probably not as insane as that, but still pretty great. The next record we were talking about releasing was the Miley Cyrus and the Dead Petz record. We’d get a good amount of Miley’s pee and mix it with some glitter and put that in. I think that would up the ante. Don’t you?
However, this collaboration, while certainly fucking insane, are not as unobtainable as you might imagine. In the past, Coyne has spoken highly of the pop princess gone rogue, telling Billboard in 2017 that he spoke to Cyrus “all the time.” Cyrus also was featured on the Flaming Lips’ Oczy Mlody track “We a Famly“, which was released in 2017, and she contributed to With A Little Help From My Fwends, the Flaming Lips’ tribute to The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band that was released in 2014.
