Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips Working on a Collaborative Album

The seven songs for the album were written and recorded by the former Disney star and Flaming Lips during the last year, and are currently being mixed in the band's Oklahoma City studio.

AceShowbiz - Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips' collaborative album is really happening. The former Disney princess and the group she has been a fan of since the "Hannah Montana" days are now almost done with the seven-song LP, which currently has no official title and release date.

Several details of the collaborative project were revealed by Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne in a new interview with Billboard magazine. He said that seven tracks on the album were written and recorded by Cyrus and the band together during the last year. He and his fellow Flaming Lips member, guitarist Steven Drozd, are now mixing them in their Oklahoma City studio.

"She does the pop thing so great, so it still feels pop, but a slightly wiser, sadder, more true version," Coyne said of the full-length. "Some of it reminds me of Pink Floyd and Portishead."

The 54-year-old musician went on explaining that recordings were split between Flaming Lips' studio and Cyrus' Los Angeles home. "Her studio is just a little room with a desk," Coyne added. "And Miley was sitting there mixing. I was like, 'I can't picture [Beyonce Knowles] doing this!' It's not a ­putdown of Beyonce. I just don't see her recording her own vocals and then EQ'ing it. It's so punk rock!"

Prior to the now-anticipated album, Cyrus and Flaming Lips have worked together on many things in the past few months, including a bizarre music video and songs off a The Beatles cover album. Coyne once also made a guest appearance at the songstress' "Bangerz" show. "We've just been getting in each other's worlds," he said of his unlikely friendship with Cyrus. "We text every day -- sometimes three times, sometimes a thousand."
