Resident weirdos Flaming Lips have adopted freak-bitch Miley Cyrus and recluse Moby for an explosive ,indulgently spectral cover of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"
for jubilee Beatles tribute album, With A Little Help From My Fwends
. The end result is unlikely and brilliant. Breathy vocals from Miley, Wayne Coyne, and Moby seamlessly melt into one another, and exuberant percussive noise that has long been in The Flaming Lips' arsenal, emphasizing the peaks and dips of the classic psychedelic song.
The Flaming Lips' full length cover album of the much celebrated Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
will be out on 10/28, and features plenty of other unexpected "Fwends." You can preorder the album and listen to the new "Lucy in the Sky WIth Diamonds" here.
