Wayne Coyne is the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for the Flaming Lips.
Prince Paul is a producer, DJ and musician perhaps best known for his work on De La Soul’s 1989 seminal debut album 3 Feet High and Rising. Most recently, he, along with Ladybug Mecca, Don Newkirk and Rodrigo Brandão, formed Brookzill, whose debut album, Throwback to the Future, is out now.
On the eve of the release of the Flaming Lips’ new record Oxzy Mlody, Wayne Coyne sat down with legendary hip-hop producer Prince Paul at the Sonos store in New York City and got deep on creativity and collaboration. Their talk takes on the Lips’ creative process, De La Soul’s copyright issues, the joy of life, scaring neighborhood kids and how Wayne gets blamed for turning Miley Cyrus into a drug addict. After their conversation, Wayne and Prince Paul answered questions from members of Battles, Bauhaus/Love and Rockets and Brookzill!
