Band have teamed up with US pop star on cover of 'A Day In The Life'
Wayne Coyne, frontman of the US band, shared a short clip of the song Cyrus recorded in the studio with the band last month (March). Posting on Instagram, Coyne wrote: “Woke up ..fell out of bed.. dragged a comb across my head.. Yep!!!! @mileycyrus singing the Paul McCartney bit on A Day In The Life!!!!!” and shared the following video.
It was also confirmed last month that Cyrus will appear on the album alongside MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden with a remake of ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’. Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips has also hinted that Coyne is contacting Phantogram and Foxygen to contribute to the album, which currently does not have a release date.
Earlier this year, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips, joined Cyrus during her gig at LA’s Staples Center for a rendition of their classic song ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1’.
‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ will be the latest record in The Flaming Lips’ project of covering classic albums in full having previously covered The Stone Roses’ debut album as well as King Crimson’s ‘In The Court Of The Crimson King’. Earlier this year the band covered ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ alongside Sean Lennon on US TV show Late Show With David Letterman.
