The Flaming Lips' cover of The Stone Roses 'Elizabeth My Dear', reportedly featuring pop star Ke$ha on backing vocals, has been revealed online. Scroll down to listen to the track.

The US band released their Stone Roses covers album, titled 'The Time Has Come To Shoot You Down… What A Sound', on November 29 as part of the Black Friday releases. The vinyl only release was limited to 500 pressings with copies of the album now changing hands on eBay.

Announced back in February of this year, the Wayne Coyne-fronted band curated their own version of the Manchester group's 1989 self-titled debut. The record also features contributions from a host of musicians including Poliça, Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, Peaking Lights and more.

Stereogum reports that Ke$ha's vocals appear uncredited on the cover version. Earlier this year, frontman Wayne Coyne said that the collaborative album between his band and the pop singer is now no longer happening. Tweeting on November 7, Coyne said that it was a "sad" situation but couldn't tell fans why the project had been pulled. He wrote: "As of now ...sadly there will be no Lip$ha.... I can't say why... It is sad...".
