Sgt. Bangerz’ Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Oklahoma’s premiere purveyors of strained eccentricity have no problems bringing Popland’s bête noires into the fold – remember that thwarted Lip$ha album? Earlier this year, news emerged that The Flaming Lips were working on a cover of The Beatles’ ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ with Miley Cyrus and MGMT, although any actual music has still failed to see the light of day. 

As Pitchfork report, Coyne’s Instagram account is currently hosting a short clip of another Miley/Lips Beatles cover, this time of Sgt. Pepper freakout ‘A Day In The Life’.

The video came with the accompanying blurb:

“Woke up ..fell out of bed.. dragged a comb across my head.. Yep!!!! @mileycyrus singing the Paul McCartney bit on A Day In The Life!!!!! Yesss!! Thanks @NewFumes Almost done mixin !! Gon beeee rad!!!!! If ya love The Beatles and John Lennon you gonna love this!!! #freaks #floyd #beatles #srgtpeppers #theflaminglips #lovemoneyparty #dogsmusicfriends #drugmusicthatdestroyshate”
