Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips showed up on Conan last night in another increasingly frequent moment of collaborative weirdness. They performed their new cover of The Beatles' already whacked out song "A Day in the Life." The song comes off The Flaming Lips adventure into the bizarro classic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
; a cover album decked out in collaborations, called With A Little Help From My Fwends
Miley, who lends her pipes to two tracks on the album: "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" featuring Moby and "A Day in the Life," is one of many fwends featured on the ambitious project. J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), My Morning Jacket, Dr. Dog, Tegan and Sara, Grace Potter, and Foxygen are just a few of the record's guest appearances.
We spoke with Wayne Coyne a few weeks ago about The Beatles, the new project, and all his wonderful Fwends, including Miley Cyrus, read it here
