The Flaming Lips may cover The Stone Roses’ debut album in full

After covering King Crimson’s debut album last year the Flaming Lips blog Future Heart opened the floor for fans to submit suggestions of what albums they’d like to see Wayne Coyne and his heady fwends cover next. Future Heart reports that most of the requests were for other vintage pysch records like Pink Floyd’s early “Piper at the Gate of Dawn,” Frank Zappa’s “Freak Out” or the Beatles’ “The White Album.”

But it seems like Coyne is opting for a (slightly) more contemporary project, opting instead to cover The Stone Roses’ 1989 self-titled debut.

Coyne tweeted a picture of himself recording, a cryptic allusion to a Stone Roses project:

Coyne is apparently trying to rope Channy Leaneagh of Poliça into his stable of fwends. And the timing is perfect—The Stone Roses are headlining Coachella 2103 as part of their reunion.

In addition to the Stone Roses project, the Flaming Lips have about six thousand updates to announce including a video with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and a new release for Valentine’s Day that comes on a USB drive inside and anatomically correct chocolate model of a human heart.

What do you think—time for James Franco to join the band? Check Future Heart for all the latest updates. Watch “She Bangs the Drums” below:
