MGMT and Miley Cyrus are one thing, but who knew The Flaming Lips would end up recruiting Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, J Mascis, Julianna Barwick, Foxygen, one-half of Lightning Bolt and many, many more for their tribute to the Beatles album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band? Well that appears to be the plan according to the art frontman Wayne Coyne put up on Instagram late last week.

“Yessssss!” he wrote. “Lots of great stuff!!!!!!!! Wow!!!! It’s really gonna happen!!!!!”

In case you can’t tell, he’s excited, and once you see the loose tracklisting below, you just might be too. In semi-related news, Coyne has shared the cover of The Sun Is Sick No. 2, the adults-only comic book series he’s been selling from the road. He’s also busy gearing up for the August 19 rollout of Die Shwer Zu Twerk, the debut EP from The Electric Würms, a side project featuring multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd as its frontman, Coyne on bass, and the psych-rock act Linear Downfall as its backing band. Check out their lead single below, along with all of that aforementioned Flaming Lips art and some upcoming tour dates…
