Miley Cyrus is recruiting her pal Wayne Coyne and his band the Flaming Lips for her next album.

The pop star has built up a strong bond with the rocker since they met last year, and she wants him to help give her follow-up to hit album “Bangerz” a more authentic sound.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Cyrus says, “On my last record, everything we did was with computers. But they’re real musicians – they can change keys on a whim. I’ve never seen anything like it. They’ve had me on this journey that’s greater than anything I’ve been on. It’s really deep.”

This won’t be their first collaboration – Cyrus teamed up with the band for its upcoming Beatles covers album on two tracks, “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” and “A Day in the Life.”
