Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne spread the news over Instagram on Friday, posting a photo of Cyrus rolling a joint in a recording studio (with conspicuously placed Bangerz-branded rolling paper). “Yup…… Recordin with Miley… High as fuck….” he wrote in the caption.
On Sunday, Coyne posted another photo of Cyrus, this one embellished with sparkles and a few more clues about the project. “Miley in the studio vomiting diamonds while singing Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds!!” he wrote. “If you’re a Beatles and John Lennon freak you gonna love love love this track!! Got Andrew from MGMT too!!!!”
Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd joined Miley Cyrus onstage during her show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center last month to perform the Flaming Lips’ 2002 song “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Part 1.”
Earlier this month, the Flaming Lips announced two special releases for this year’s Record Store Day: a 12-inch vinyl edition of their hour-long 2011 single “7 Skies H3” and a silver 7-inch cover of “Gates of Steel” dedicated to Devo’s late guitarist Bob Casale.
