The Flaming Lips To Record ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ Cover Record With Miley Cyrus, MGMT

When it comes to The Flaming Lips, nothing’s shocking. It’s been speculated for a few days, but the band have confirmed that they’re working on a tribute album to The Beatles’ magnum opus, Sgt. Pepper’s Loney Hearts Club Band with a little help from their friends.

Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne posted an Instagram photo of Miley Cyrus in the studio over the weekend, fueling speculation that the band would be collaborating with the pop star in the future. It has now been confirmed that Miley will be featured on the group’s rendition of “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” along with MGMT singer Andrew VanWyngarden, Tame Impala, Phantogram, Foxygen and more on other various tracks.

Fans shouldn’t be surprised, as the band has put their spin on classic albums in the past, including King Crimson’s In The Court Of The Crimson King and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon.

This is the rare album that will be enjoyable no matter how well it’s pulled off. We’ll keep you updated as details emerge.
