The Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne has announced his Electric Würms side project.

The band also features Steven Drozd from The Flaming Lips and their debut, six track album 'Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk' is set for release on August 18. Four members of the Nashville psych rock band Linear Downfall - Charlee, Chance, Doom and Will - are taking part in the new project as well.

A press release for the band reads: "They are not a super-group. They are like Sherpas climbing with you. To help you. To love you. They have a message of hope and peace and chaos and violence. All the secrets that they know they tell you. That's what love is."

The 'Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk' tracklisting is:

'I Could Only See Clouds'
'Futuristic Hallucination'
'The Bat'
'Living'
'Transform!!!'
'Heart Of The Sunrise'


Meanwhile, 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'.
