The Flaming Lips' remake of The Beatles' album 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' is set for release on October 28.

The tribute album, entitled 'With a Little Help From My Fwends', features a version of 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' which sees guest appearances from Miley Cyrus and Moby.

In addition they have recruited artists including MGMT and Tame Impala for the project, and Cyrus also features on 'A Day In The Life'. Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips previously hinted that frontman Wayne Coyne was contacting Phantogram and Foxygen to contribute to the album.

'With a Little Help From My Fwends' 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'.

Miley Cyrus was recently joined by Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips for a performance of 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' in Manchester. The singer's 'Bangerz' tour arrived at the Phones 4 U Arena on May 14 and she was joined by Coyne and Drozd for a rendition of the song. Pitchfork reports that the performance was recorded for use in the Billboard Music Awards, which will take place tonight (May 18) in Las Vegas. Coyne and Drozd also recently joined Cyrus during her gig at LA's Staples Center for a rendition of their classic song 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, Pt 1'.

Cyrus recently said that she has been writing songs for the follow-up to her 'Bangerz' album with Coyne and Drozd, praising their ability to "change keys on a whim".
