All star cover record from The Flaming Lips. The Lips have developed a thing for modernizing classic rock songs and With A Little Help From My Fwends continues the trend. It's a track for track cover of The Beatles' classic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. They've tapped a bevy of collaborators for this one: pop singers (Miley Cyrus, Tegan & Sara), fellow alt-rock veterans (J. Mascis, Tool’s Maynard James Keenan), Bonnaroo royalty (My Morning Jacket, Dr. Dog), indie phenoms (Foxygen, Phantogram), and maverick MCs (Cool Kid Chuck Inglish), alongside the usual Lips affiliates like New Fumes and Stardeath & White Dwarfs. All proceeds from record sales will go to The Bella Foundation, an organization in Oklahoma City that helps provide veterinary care to needy pet owners.
