The Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus have recorded 'A Day in the Life' for their upcoming 'Sgt. Pepper' tribute album.

The Flaming Lips may be pranking the rock world by announcing an "immersive companion piece" to Pink Floyd's classic.
The pop star has teamed up with one of indie's weirdest characters to record a Beatles classic.
All week long, CBS' 'The Late Show with David Letterman' has been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in America with other musicians performing their songs. Last night, it was the Flaming Lips' turn, and they brought along a friend with a personal connection to the band, John Lennon's son, Sean Ono Lennon, on 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.'
Although they have a deserved reputation as one of indie rock's weirdest bands, the Flaming Lips have a classic rock heart. Literally. Just in time for Valentine's Day, they have released a limited edition 15-song mix, 'Songs of Love,' which closes with a cover of the Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love.'
In a move that simultaneously reaffirms the marketing genius of Kiss while illustrating the bottomless depths of Wayne Coyne's weirdness, the Flaming Lips frontman has revealed that the band plans to include the blood of its collaborators in its upcoming 2-LP Record Store Day exclusive release.
Psychedelic warlords often disappear in smoke. It's true! Here we have those lysergic rebels collectively known as the Flaming Lips, dishing out yet another fabulous interpretation of a Beatles song. In this clip, the Oklahoma misfits are joined by jazz/rock guitarist Nels Cline to deliver an over-the-top rendition of 'I Want You (She's So Heavy).'
Maybe the Flaming Lips decided to record a crazy, bass-heavy, guitar-free video for the Beatles psychedelic masterpiece 'I Am the Walrus' as a way to prepare for their upcoming New Year's Eve concerts with Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band in their hometown of Oklahoma City. More likely, they're weirding out in the clip because, well, that's what they do best.
