US producer Flying Lotus has said he is hoping to continue his collaboration with Thom Yorke after being picked to support the Radiohead frontman on his US tour.
Yorke also lends vocals to a track on Flying Lotus’ third album Cosmogramma, which is out in May.
FlyLo – real name Steven Ellison – revealed how he hooked up with the singer.
“I woke up to an e-mail,” he told 6 Music news. “It was after I had a dream that me and Thom Yorke were at a grocery store together, and I woke up to that shortly after.
“It’s weird, him and I. We were born on the same day and we keep having these strange but really positive meetings. Now we’ve done this song on my record and I only wonder what’s going to happen next.”
The producer will join Yorke for seven dates when the singer’s new group Atoms For Peace hit the road next month.
"I might make a contribution or two to the next Thom Yorke album."
The band also features Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, REM drummer Joey Waronker and instrumentalist Mauro Refosco.
Yorke sang on the track ...And the World Laughs With You on the new Flying Lotus album.
“I might make a contribution or two to the next Thom Yorke album,” Flying Lotus said. “Maybe do a remix or something. We’ll see.
“I don’t want to jump the gun or anything but I think it’s going to keep going.”
Flying Lotus starts his own UK tour in London on Wednesday before visiting Brighton and Bristol.
He said the UK was the first country to embrace his music and fans at his shows can expect “live remixing” of his songs and tracks he is inspired by.
“It’s chopping up bits and pieces of things and making this monster. It’s a lot of fun to play it because I never really know where we’re going.
“I’m just conducting this electronic mess,” he joked.
