Flaming Lips Announce Track Listing and Guests for ‘Sgt. Pepper”s Tribute Album
In addition to the track listing — which, not so surprisingly, follows the exact same order as the Beatles‘ classic 1967 album — the band has announced which artists will be performing on the 13 tracks found on their upcoming record.
The Lips themselves appear on six of the songs, including classics like ‘With a Little Help From My Friends,’ ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds’ and ‘A Day in the Life.’ Their special guests cross genres, featuring artists from the indie world (J. Mascis, Tegan and Sara), the jam-band scene (My Morning Jacket, Dr. Dog) and even pop star Miley Cyrus, who appears on two key cuts.
‘With a Little Help From My Fwends,’ which comes out on Oct. 28, also includes an appearance by the Lips’ new side project Electric Wurms, who perform ‘Fixing a Hole.’ You can see the entire track listing below.
Proceeds from the album go toward the Bella Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Oklahoma City (the Lips’ hometown) that helps low-income, elderly and terminally ill pet owners with their vet bills.
