The Flaming Lips have covered David Bowie and Bing Crosby‘s Christmas medley ‘Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy’.

Earlier this month, the band revealed details of their new album, ‘King’s Mouth’. The LP will be narrated by The Clash’s Mick Jones and will be released on April 13, via Warner Bros.

Sharing the news on his Instagram, Coyne wrote: “…ok.. so… our King’s Mouth album that will be coming out on @recordstoredayus in April has Mick Jones on it.

“yeah Mick Jones from The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite.. he’s doing the narration… he’s on almost every song… it really it quite unbelievable.. ill post a little video clip so you can hear him … but yeah!!!!! Man!!! Sooooo cool.”

He also tagged the likes of Nile Rodgers, Miley Cyrus, Dan Deacon, and Post Malone in the post. It is currently unclear whether those artists will also appear on the record or not.

Earlier this year, Coyne spoke to NME about potentially working with Malone. “I would love to do something with him, he’s got a great melodic thing about him,” he said. “Even though it appears like he’s a rapper, he’s also a good singer and has a cool style and a good way of blending rap with some melodic stuff. His name and tattoos are great.”
