The psych-rock vets first joined forces with the pop starlet during their concert in Los Angeles in February, which coincided with the Lips’ 30th anniversary with the band. Since then, the Lips have announced plans for a full covers album of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heats Club Band alongside Cyrus, MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, and possibly Tame Impala, Phantogram, Foxygen, and Zorch, among others.

One of my favourite Beatles songs ever. People love to hate Miley but she’s got a voice as good as anyone. Hopefully this ends up being good.
