Psych-rock veterans The Flaming Lips have today released a cover version of The Beatles’ classic ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’, which you can stream in full below.
The band are gearing up for a New Years Eve gig at Aspen’s ‘Belly Up’ in Colorado tonight, and have apparently promised to perform a few Beatles/John Lennon standards including ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’, ‘Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey’, ‘Come Together’, ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’, ‘Across The Universe’ and ‘Dear Prudence’ as well as ‘Lucy…’.
The stream of ‘Lucy…’ comes from The Lips’ rehearsals for the show, and follows their recent covers of The Stone Roses and Tame Impala tracks. Anyone would think they’re getting bored of playing their own songs!
