The Flaming Lips Record Day Exclusive Hitting Digital/CD, Yoshimi Musical Ready For Premier

One of the most anticipated albums of the year, THE FLAMING LIPS’ THE FLAMING LIPS AND HEADY FWENDS sold out instantly at retail outlets around the world when it was released on vinyl in honor of Record Store Day this past April 21st. Now, due to overwhelming demand, Warner Bros. Records will make the album available on physical CD and digitally via all digital retailers on June 26th.

the album contains the band’s unique and experimental collaborations with a diverse cross-section of heavy friends from every corner of the musical cosmos, including vocal and musical assistance from such disparate playmates as Yoko Ono, Nick Cave, Bon Iver, Ke$ha and many more. A new track recorded with Aaron Behrens of Ghostland Observatory is exclusive to the CD and digital versions and was not included on the vinyl edition.
In other LIPS’ news, the band is nearing completion of its next official studio album, which is due this fall with a tour to coincide. Also the Flaming Lips, along with multiple Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff will premiere their musical production of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots at the La Jolla Playhouse for the theater’s 2012 / 2013 season.
