Stephen Malkmus has said that he wants to collaborate with Lorde in the future and is hopeful because she owes him a “favour”.

Stephen Malkmus’ band The Jicks release their new album ‘Sparkle Hard’ on May 18. It features a guest cameo from Sonic Youth‘s Kim Gordon on the track ‘Refute’.

Speaking to Pitchfork recently, the former Pavement frontman explained how the Gordon collaboration came about, saying: “Kim is a friend and she just said, ‘I think the lyrics are funny, I’ll do it.’ She’s really inspirational – she’s always doing stuff.”

Asked whether he was worried about what Thurston Moore (Gordon’s ex-husband and bandmate) would think about the collab, Malkmus replied: “No, because I just thought it was funny. I like him too.”

Malkmus added: “She did have a public divorce that was cared about in certain zones of music, but really they’re just two people. I have no judgment on either one. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors in people’s relationships? We all know it’s not easy. I suppose there are Cinderella stories, but from my experience, it’s, like, therapy and talk and growing. It’s work.”

He went on to say that “if Kim couldn’t do it, I was gonna ask Lorde to do it, ’cause I thought Lorde owed me a favour.”

Prompted to elaborate, Malkmus said: “I did something for her. I don’t wanna say [what]. I did her a favour.”

“It wasn’t a big deal. It’s not very exciting. It obviously wasn’t big enough to get her to potentially sing on a tune. Maybe her parents are Pavement fans or something, so I’m still hoping [for a collaboration].”

Malkmus recently downplayed the chances of a Pavement reunion. 2019 marks the band’s 30th anniversary, but Malkmus has said: “I’m not so keen on [the idea] right now… I don’t know if I have time for a Pavement reunion.”
