Flaming Lips Fwends Space Out on Beatles ‘Fixing a Hole’ Cover
Electric Würms side project pitches in on full-album 'Sgt. Pepper's' remake
Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne’s blunted jam band Electric Würms release their debut EP Musik, die Schwer zu Twerk today, but they’re also set to contribute a track to the Flaming Lips’ upcoming Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band tribute compilation With a Little Help From My Fwends. Their version of “Fixing a Hole” has now surfaced and it’s a spacey and downcast take on the jaunty original. Drozd’s vocals are buried amidst a haze of keyboards and reverb, but he casually prods the instrumental to offer an unsettling and occasionally heartbreaking rendition of the domestic ode.
Listen above alongside a subtly shifting visual. For more, read a recent interview with Coyne that touches on the Beatles project as a whole.
With a Little Help From My Fwends is due October 28 on Warner Bros.
