BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Rock stars to recreate Sgt Pepper: "Oasis, The Killers and Razorlight are to cover songs from The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to mark the album's 40th anniversary.
James Morrison, The Fratellis, Travis and the Kaiser Chiefs are among the other acts taking part in the special recording sessions for BBC Radio 2.
The engineer in charge of the original 1967 sessions will use the same equipment to record the new versions.
The results will be aired on Radio 2 on 2 June, a day after the anniversary.
The original album was released on 1 June 1967 and went on to be regarded as one of the best and most influential releases in rock history.
Last year, it came top of a Radio 2 poll to find the best number one album of all time.
The modern rock bands will be recorded by audio engineer Geoff Emerick, using the one-inch four-track equipment he captured the original on 40 years ago."
