October, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne revealed plans for an upcoming compilation featuring collaborations with Death Cab For Cutie, Nick Cave, Ghostland Observatory, and others. Now, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Coyne added Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon to that list, noting that the Wisconsin wunderkind is sending him two tracks “any day now.”
Some collaborations have already been recorded (Nick Cave, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Plastic Ono Band, Neon Indian), while others are still coming together. And then there are the artists (Ke$ha, Lykke Li, Erykah Badu) whom Coyne is still trying to convince to jump onboard.
Coyne had previously said that the compilation would be released in April for Record Store Day 2012. Speaking with Rolling Stone, he said he’s still aiming for an April release, however, a release date remains unconfirmed.
