Ke$ha Lends Her Heavenly Vocals To The Flaming Lips’ Stone Roses Tribute Album: Listen

Ke$ha‘s much-discussed rock album with The Flaming Lips (otherwise known as Lip$ha) never eventuated but fans can still hear the kooky collaborators on “Elizabeth My Dear”. The meandering anthem, which also features New Fumes, is taken from the band’s track-for-track cover of The Stone Roses debut LP — a project they released on limited edition vinyl to support Record Store Day.

Much like Lady Dolla’s Heady Fwends collab with The Flaming Lips, “Elizabeth My Day” is a sprawling sonic adventure that takes the diva in a completely different direction from current iTunes chart-topper “Timber”. She sings softly over acoustic guitar and waves of feedback before groaning and howling like a woman possessed. Listen to the multi-faced pop warrior after the jump.

Should K$ venture more in this direction or is her immense talent better served on commercial projects? Have your say in the comments below.
