Flaming Lips Plan ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ Remake With Stoned Friends

Wayne Coyne and his ever-stellar Flaming Lips are about to take on one of the most celebrated albums in rock ‘n’ roll history.

The Lips plan to remake the Beatles’ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ with a little help from their friends, including Tame Impala, Foxygen and Miley Cyrus, who made an appearance, along with what looked like some weed, in a photo Coyne posted online late last week.

This isn’t the first time the Lips have tackled a classic album and remade it in their own twisted image. They’ve also covered Pink Floyd‘s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon,’ the Stone Roses‘ self-titled debut and King Crimson‘s ’In the Court of the Crimson King.’

The band has also been known to throw in stunning cover versions of songs by other classic groups — including Led Zeppelin and other Beatles’ songs — in concert and on record. Last month, they played ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds‘ with Sean Lennon on David Letterman’s show.

“We’ve done a couple of these things, but I think Wayne is trying to make this one a little more high-profile, more stuff going on, more things connected,” the Lips’ Steve Drozd told Rock Sucker. ”It’s still in the very early stages though, so I can’t say too much about it.”
