The Flaming Lips are celebrating the twentieth anniversary of their seminal report Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots with the appropriately titled Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: twentieth Anniversary Version, a large field set of B-sides, demos, and different rarities. Take a hearken to the mission beneath.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: twentieth Anniversary Version is accessible digitally, as a 6xCD set, and as a 5xLP set (which will likely be launched on April 14th, 2023). Along with the unique album, the bundle options dwell radio classes, remixes, two full concert events, and normal deep cuts which have by no means obtained a correct bodily launch.

Among the many gems are fan favorites “Assassination of the Solar,” “Thank You Jack White (For the Fiber-Optic Jesus You Gave Me),” and an instrumental model of “Do You Understand??,” Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and Kylie Minogue covers, and, maybe most notably, “Spongebob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall Of Vitality,” their contribution to The Spongebob SquarePants Film. 

Take a look at the total tracklist and paintings for Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: twentieth Anniversary Version beneath. The reissue follows 2021’s The place the Viaduct Looms, The Flaming Lips’ Nick Cave covers album they made with 13-year-old musician Nell Smith. Earlier this 12 months, in the meantime, the band coated Yoko Ono’s “Mrs. Lennon” for a tribute album to the artist organized by Ben Gibbard.
