The Flaming Lips cover Tame Impala’s ‘Elephant’

The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala originally collaborated on the Lips’ Heady Fwends album last year – and now Wayne Coyne‘s gang of psychedelic adventurers have continued the musical love-in by covering Tame Impala‘s ‘Elephant‘.

The track is set to feature on a collaborative EP where the two bands will cover each other’s songs.

The bands, who’ve already toured together, embark on another three date US tour which starts tonight in LA. As yet there’s no official release date for the EP, but it will be available at their coming shows.

It’s not really a patch on the original is it? But it’s still rather good fun nonetheless.
