Featured on The Time Has Come to Shoot You Down ... What A Sound

Earlier this year The Flaming Lips revealed that they would be recruiting a number of old friends to help them record a track-for-track cover album of The Stone Roses' self-titled debut. Featuring contributions from New Fumes as well as Stardeath and White Dwarfs, the resulting effort, The Time Has Come to Shoot You Down ... What A Sound, was released as a limited edition vinyl on Record Store Day. For those unable to scrounge up the cash to bid on available copies on eBay the album's included cover of "Elizabeth My Dear" has surfaced online, featuring not just The Flaming Lips and New Fumes, but Heady Fwends contributor Ke$ha. The shock pop starlet is rumored to be uncredited on the track due to some supposed creative control issues with her label Kemosabe and her songwriting collaborator Dr. Luke. It is believed friction between Ke$ha and the label had inevitably led to the dissolution of an intended collaborative album with The Flaming Lips, Lip$ha.

Either way a ripped audio of the vinyl cut is available to listen to below.

The creative control issues are hardly supposed. Ke$ha told Rolling Stone magazine she was having problems with her label and that she was unhappy that none of her emotional songs or ballads have ever become singles. Her mom said on Twitter that she hopes Ke$ha gets dropped by her label and she asked people to sign the Free Kesha petition. It looks like Ke$ha has found a way to get around her label by either going uncredited or leaking songs for free like she did with Meet Me In Space.
