The Flaming Lips already announced the impending release of With A Little Help From My Fwends, their guest-heavy full-length tribute to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album will include covers of every single song on the Beatles’ original album, and we already knew that it would feature guests like Miley Cyrus, Moby, Electric Würms, and MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden. As it turns out, that was just the tip of the collaborative iceberg. Frontman Wayne Coyne posted the tracklist sprawl on Instagram (see below), and it seems to indicate that the album will also feature contributions from My Morning Jacket, Tegan And Sara, J Mascis, Foxygen, Phantogram, Julianna Barwick, Dr. Dog, the Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish, Lightning Bolt side project Black Pus, Wilco side project the Autumn Defense, Grace Potter, and Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan. At this point, it’s hard to even imagine what this thing will sound like. But there you have it: It’s happening. It’s out 10/28 on Warner Bros. Here’s the tracklist…
