The Flaming Lips have announced plans to release a full cover album of the Beatles’ iconic Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band—and they’re bringing some friends along for the ride.
The band has embarked on these massive undertakings before, knocking off King Crimson’s In the Court of the Crimson King and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. We don’t know too much about a final features list at this point, but the band has reportedly reached out to MGMT, Phantogram, Foxygen, Tame Impala, and Miley Cyrus.
This is the next chapter of the weird and wonderful collaboration between Wayne Coyne and Cyrus. The Flaming Lips have joined Cyrus onstage for a couple recent shows, and then there was this.
Now you can hear what might be Coyne and Cyrus’ take on “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Stream below, and look out for more cuts from the upcoming album.
