The eccentric pair decided to record a track about doing acid while the world ends, which Coyne says led to an interesting turn of events.Â The California native admitted that she had never done the drug, suggesting they get some right away so she could sing about it. Despite the enthusiasm, Coyne insists the session was clean, explaining,Â â€œWe didnâ€™t, because I was like â€˜Listen ladyâ€¦we have to record.â€™ Plus, I didnâ€™t really want her to. The way she is, itâ€™s as though sheâ€™s on acid already.â€
According to Coyne, a few special edition vinyl versions of the record will include blood samples of the special guest artists.
