UPDATE (7/13): After doing an exclusive vinyl reissue of The Soft Bulletin Companion for Record Store Day, the Flaming Lips will make the 1999 rarity widely available for the first time on CD, digital and vinyl on June 16th. The new release will also include an additional track, an early mix of “1000 ft. Hands.” The Soft Bulletin Companion is available to pre-order and pre-save on streaming services.


The Flaming Lips have announced their return to live music with a world tour, kicking off during the summer of 2021 and running for nearly a year into the summer of 2022.

The band will begin their trek on August 20th at the Ogden Amphitheatre in Ogden, Utah, followed by an August 21st show at Psycho Las Vegas. The Flaming Lips will then tour the Northeast United States and Quebec in November, followed by a more expansive North American tour in the spring of 2022. Finally, the band will play a handful of shows in the U.K. and Ireland from May through July 2022, ending at the Galway International Arts Festival.

Additionally, the Flaming Lips have announced that they’ll release The Soft Bulletin Companion, a special vinyl reissue of their companion album to 1999’s The Soft Bulletin, on June 12th, 2021, as part of Record Store Day. The original Soft Bulletin Companion was released as a CD alongside The Soft Bulletin more than 20 years ago and contains unreleased material, outtakes, early mixes, B-sides, international bonus tracks, and stereo versions of songs from the Flaming Lips’ previous album Zaireeka. Pressed on double silver vinyl, the special edition of The Soft Bulletin Companion is limited to 16,000 copies worldwide and will be available exclusively at independent record stores.
