The Flaming Lips have previously announced that they are cooking up a special collaborative album, slated for April, featuring guest spots from Plastic Ono Band, Nick Cave and Neon Indian. Rolling Stone is now reporting that Justin Vernon bka Bon Iver will also be a collaborator. Lead singer Wayne Coyne is hoping that he will be able to secure Erykah Badu, Lykke Li and Ke$ha for the record, as well.
