It will be broadcast this Friday (April 24)

The Flaming Lips have never been shy of their love for The Beatles, with the group now set to pay tribute to the Fab Four with a special radio broadcast.

Frontman Wayne Coyne and co will take over Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show this week for a Beatles special. The broadcast will air on Friday (April 24) and will be hosted by Portlandia actor Fred Armisen.

The Flaming Lips will play songs from their 2014 ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ tribute album ‘With A Little Help From My Fwends’, also promising “other surprises”.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Miley Cyrus is recording new music with The Flaming Lips, as well as Ariel Pink.

In other Beatles news, John Lennon’s eight studio solo albums are set to be compiled in a new vinyl box set release.

The collection, titled simply ‘Lennon’, will feature the records ‘John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band’, ‘Imagine’, ‘Some Time in New York City’, ‘Mind Games’, ‘Walls and Bridges’, ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’, ‘Double Fantasy’ and ‘Milk And Honey’, all remastered.

The albums will also come as a ultra high-resolution digital file, with postcards, posters and booklets also included in the box set. Many of the albums have long been out of print on vinyl and the new releases will replicate their original artwork.

The box set will be released on June 9, with the individual albums following separately on August 21. Watch a trailer video for the release below and find out more at the official Lennon website.
