The Flaming Lips have hinted that they might release a remake of The Stone Roses' debut LP.

The album would be part of Wayne Coyne's plans to remake entire classic albums in a series of collaborate projects with other bands, The Future Heart reports. In 2010, The Flaming Lips released a track-by-track cover of Pink Floyd's seminal 1973 album 'Dark Side Of The Moon'. Last year Wayne Coyne was behind a remake of the debut album by British prog rock group King Crimson 'Playing Hide And Seek With The Ghosts Of Dawn' which covered every song from the band's 'In The Court of The Crimson King'.

Now a series of messages on social media from Coyne and his friends suggest he may now be taking on the Roses' 1989 eponymous debut LP.

Writing on Instagram, Wayne said that he was recording a version of 'She Bangs The Drums' and was hoping to get Poliça singer Channy Leaneagh to appear:



Meanwhile Daniel Huffman of the band New Flumes, with whom Flaming Lips teamed up with for the track 'Girl, You're So Weird' and who also appeared on 'Playing Hide And Seek With The Ghosts Of Dawn', tweeted:



Finally, Matt Duckworth from Stardeath and White Dwarfs, the band fronted by Coyne's nephew Dennis Coyne who contributed to the 'Dark Side Of The Moon' remake, said he was putting vocals on an 'Hour of the Time Majesty' (who previously collaborated with Flaming Lips on their 2012 album 'The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends'):



It is not yet clear if the album is definitely going ahead, or when it will be released but The Flaming Lips are, as ever, continuing to work on a number of projects. Yesterday they announced that they will release a new USB compilation album encased in an anatomically correct chocolate heart for Valentine's Day.

The band have teamed up with Dallas chocolatiers Dude, Sweet Chocolate to produce their latest unique stunt, following the 2011 release of released the 'Gummy Song Skull' EP, a seven-pound skull made of gummy bear material with a gummy brain. Each heart-shaped box houses a USB stick, featuring a compilation from the band titled 'Songs Of Love'. A statement from the band states that the hearts are made of "72% South American dark chocolate studded with hazelnut mini whoppers and waffle cone crunch".

Fans will be familiar with some of the tracks found on their romantic USB stick with a cover of The Beatles’ ‘All You Need Is Love’ recorded with Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes featured on the tracklisting. Similarly, ‘Love Is Mind Control’, which the band recorded for a King Crimson tribute album in 2012, will also be included.

The Flaming Lips release their next studio album, 'The Terror', in April. The album will be released on April 1 via Bella Union (in the UK) and was produced by Dave Fridmann and the band at Tarbox Road Studios in New York State. The album is described as "nine original compositions that reflect a darker-hued spectrum than previous works along with a more inward-looking lyrical perspective than one might expect – but then again, maybe not".
