Published Apr 05, 2013The Flaming Lips won't officially release their latest LP, The Terror, until later this month, but the busy psych-pop weirdos have already set their sights on new projects. Not only are they reportedly working on a full-length with Ke$ha, but they've just confirmed plans to cover the Stone Roses self-titled debut.
This follows prior speculation that the Flaming Lips would be taking on the Madchester band's classic 1989 album as the latest in a series of curated tribute albums that has previously brought us Dark Side of the Moon and In the Court of the Crimson King.
Speaking with British newspaper the Sun about these collaborative cover LPs, singer Wayne Coyne said, "The one we're working on now is the Stone Roses' first record. I don't really love them but I guess I do by loving their music. It's virtually the same song over and over again."
He went on to add that the album's repetitive nature isn't necessarily a bad thing. "If you like one song, you'll probably like all of them," he pointed out. "If you hate one, you'll hate them all. Dark Side of the Moon is like that and so is The Terror."
Various tweets have suggested that the collection will likely feature contributions from Stardeath and White Dwarfs, New Fumes, plus HOTT MT, Depth & Current, and Def Rain.
