The Flam­ing Lips, a band renowned for the­atri­cal live per­for­mances, are plan­ning a mu­si­cal based on their al­bum Yoshimi Bat­tles the Pink Ro­bots. Front­man Wayne Coyne told Bill­board that the pro­ject was in the “early stages of pro­duc­tion” and that they were work­ing with Des McAnuff, who brought The Who’s Tommy to the stage. It will in­cor­po­rate songs from the Ok­la­homa band’s most re­cent al­bums.
