Flaming Lips reveal full line-up for Sgt. Pepper's project

The Flaming Lips have revealed the full list of contributors for their remake of The Beatles' classic 1967 LP, Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album, entitled With A Little Help From My Fwends, is set for release through Warner Bros. on October 21 this year. The personnel list for the album contains a few surprises, including Miley Cyrus, who will feature on 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' along with Moby, as well as the album's closing track, 'A Day in the Life'.

Other contributors include My Morning Jacket, Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis and Tool / Perfect Circle mainman James Maynard Keenan.
