Miley Cyrus and Wayne Coyne perform at Staples Center on Feb. 22, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

Coyne's Instagram post suggests either the track or album is called "Tangerine."

Super best friends Wayne Coyne and Miley Cyrus have more up their sleeves than an endless stream of Instagram shenanigans. Cyrus and the Flaming Lips are working on a so-far-untitled seven-track album that seems to feature a guest appearance from Big Sean.

Coyne shared the following video on Instagram yesterday (Aug. 11), along with the caption, "Yessss!!! Big Sean on Tangerine!!! Cool shit comin motherfuckers!!" 


In the studio clip, Big Sean's verse contains the words, "All I see is warm champagne / confetti on the floor of a mess that I'm still in / the same playlist on my phone…"

And what about "Tangerine"? No track list or album title has been confirmed yet, so it could be the name of the song, or even the whole album. The caption does list a number of collaborators, like Ariel Pink and Coyne's nephew, Dennis.

Back in May, we learned through Coyne's interview about the Miley Cyrus collaboration that the album was nearly done and being mixed by Coyne and guitarist Steven Drozd in their Oklahoma City studio. Wayne hinted that song titles could include "The Milky Milky Milk" and "Tiger Dreams." 

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