With a Little Help From My Fwends
Just like their 2009 tribute to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, the Flaming Lips and a slew of collaborators recorded their own versions of every Sgt. Pepper's cut for With a Little Help From My Fwends. Along with Miley Cyrus (who also sings on "A Day in the Life") and Moby, the album features contributions from Flaming Lips side project Electric Würms, and other musicians.
"It's really just a lot of great friends of mine who are all contributing," Coyne told Rolling Stone about the project. "Sometimes it's two groups doing a song; sometimes it's one. And it's not always the Flaming Lips and someone; sometimes it's just other groups. But I think all that's gonna be great." Coyne went on to mention that the band was working with Sean Lennon and My Morning Jacket, but didn't clarify if those artists would appear on With a Little Help From My Fwends.
A portion of the proceeds from the tribute album will go to Bella Foundation, which helps low-income, elderly or terminally ill pet owners in the Lips' hometown of Oklahoma City pay for veterinary care. As Coyne explained, the animal welfare situation in Oklahoma City is quite dire, and he hopes With a Little Help From My Fwends will be able to help in some small part.
