Flaming Lips’ Sgt. Pepper’s Tribute Tracklist Revealed: My Morning Jacket, MGMT, Miley Cyrus, Tegan And Sara, J Mascis, More

The Flaming Lips already announced the impending release of With A Little Help From My Fwends, their guest-heavy full-length tribute to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album will include covers of every single song on the Beatles’ original album, and we already knew that it would feature guests like Miley Cyrus, Moby, Electric Würms, and MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden. As it turns out, that was just the tip of the collaborative iceberg. Frontman Wayne Coyne posted the tracklist sprawl on Instagram (see below), and it seems to indicate that the album will also feature contributions from My Morning Jacket, Tegan And Sara, J Mascis, Foxygen, Phantogram, Julianna Barwick, Dr. Dog, the Cool Kids’ Chuck Inglish, Lightning Bolt side project Black Pus, Wilco side project the Autumn Defense, Grace Potter, and Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan. At this point, it’s hard to even imagine what this thing will sound like. But there you have it: It’s happening. It’s out 10/28 on Warner Bros. Here’s the tracklist…

The Beatles - Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End

The Beatles - Get Back

"…to where you once belonged…"

The Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand

The Beatles - I Saw Her Standing There

The Beatles - She Loves You

I absolutely love any footage of people going crazy over The Beatles because it is one of the best examples of the pure insanity - yet overwhelming perfection - of desire being awakened.

And I think we all know what that is like.

The Beatles - Till There Was You

The Beatles - All My Loving

If Wikipedia is to be trusted, this is the first song that The Beatles played on the Ed Sullivan Show on this day, February the 9th, back in 1964.

Prepare for a tiny British invasion today.

“A Hard Day’s Night finds the band reveling in its then-new fame while trying to escape it, if only for a few moments at a time. John, Paul, George, and Ringo cast a skeptical eye at the machinery of stardom, but they never seem cynical about what it means to be The Beatles in 1964, and never do anything to give those screaming throngs any reason to grow disillusioned with their idols. The music is as pure as the motives of the people making it: young men, just a few years older than the audiences they’re working into a frenzy, who want nothing more than to express themselves and please the crowd. It’s just the rest of the world, with its endless questions and demands, that keeps getting in the way.”

Zip up your Beatle boots and practice your hysterical screaming: A Hard Day’s Night is our Movie Of The Week. [Read more…]
