Fierce Mobile Content has an interesting interview with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, focusing on his views on social media and digital music. He’s a big fan of Twitter. “I like to do things myself. You don’t need to organize a press release. I can say it 100 different ways for three weeks straight, and then it comes from me,” he says. “We’re the ones doing this. With Twitter, people get to see the process, which I think makes the end product more… [pauses] You feel more of the love and energy we put into it.” However, he’s less keen on Björk’s much-feted Biophilia album-app, where every song gets its own interactive playtoy. “I like that Björk is exploring that – some of that is fun, but sometimes, it becomes a bit too much. Remember when you could make a video for every song on your record? I never cared for every song to have a video. I love Björk, but I don’t need 12 Björk videos to watch. I prefer one or two fantastic ones to watch.”
