The Flaming Lips Release Cover of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"
In anticipation of their special New Year’s Eve performance of John Lennon-penned Beatles tunes, The Flaming Lips have released a extra-psychedelic cover of the classic “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” via Soundcloud. Ever at the forefront of social media, The Lips’ effervescent frontman Wayne Coyne shared the link through his Instagram account on Sunday.
Numerous videos posted to Coyne’s Instagram have shown the Oklahoma psych-rockers rehearsing songs such as “Come Together” and “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey.”
As previously reported, The Lips will take the stage tonight at Belly Up in Aspen, CO to perform two full sets, the second of which will be a Beatles cover set. Through his Twitter and Instagram accounts, Coyne has announced his hopes to perform “Tomorrow Never Knows” at midnight.
