The Great White Way will never be the same: In an exclusive interview, Wayne Coyne, lead singer of the Flaming Lips, told EW.com that the psych-rock band will team up with acclaimed TV writer and show creator Aaron Sorkin to turn the group's 2002 album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots into a Broadway musical.
WAYNE: Her name -
NATHAN: It's Yoshimi.
WAYNE: She's a black belt—
NATHAN: In karate, yes. She's also a municipal employee.

NATHAN: I was going to say—
WAYNE: Battling those evil robots.
NATHAN: You know what else is evil?
WAYNE: Religion. And Republicans. Also drug laws. A guy wants to take lots of "vitamins," it should -
NATHAN: It's nobody else's business. Anyway, I hope Yoshimi—
WAYNE: —won't let those robots eat us? Me too.
NATHAN: Are these INSECTS on me? Is that what these fucking things are?
