On October 28, the Flaming Lips will release With a Little Help From My Fwends, a full-album cover of the Beatles‘ 1967 classic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Now, Wayne Coyne has shared a tracklist on Instagram that features a few previously confirmed contributors and a handful of brand new ones.
Take a deep breath: From the looks of it, the album will feature Miley Cyrus, My Morning Jacket, J Mascis, Dr. Dog, Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish, Phantogram, Julianna Barwick, Tool/Perfect Circle/Puscifer singer Maynard James Keenan, Tegan and Sara, Moby, Foxygen, MGMT, Black Pus (aka Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale), Morgan Delt, Wilco side project the Autumn Defense, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd’s side project Electric Würms, Grace Potter, and more. (It has not been confirmed that this is the complete and final tracklist.)
As Coyne wrote on Instagram: “Yessssss!! Lots of great stuff !!!!!!!! Wow!!!! It’s really gonna happen!!!!!”. Notably, Cyrus will guest on the epic album closer “A Day in the Life”, while Mascis and My Morning Jacket will play the title track opener. The Lips/Miley version of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” is out now.
Proceeds from sales of With a Little Help From My Fwends will go to the Bella Foundation, an organization in the band’s Oklahoma City hometown that helps low income, elderly, or terminally ill pet owners with the cost of veterinary care.
