On Friday, The Flaming Lips announced that they were recording new music with Miley Cyrus. While the project was then, ahem, shrouded in smoke, frontman Wayne Coyne has once more taken to Instagram to reveal that they’re covering The Beatles’ “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”. In addition, The Flaming Montana is joined in some capacity by MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden. This second pic also features little in the way of actual music making, but it does prove Coyne’s got some mad Photoshop skills:
The psych-rock vets first joined forces with the pop starlet during their concert in Los Angeles last month, which coincided with the Lips’ 30th anniversary with the band. Together they performed “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” — watch the footage below.
