The Flaming Lips have announced some new tour dates. They stretch into 2022 and include shows in North America and the UK. Also, on yesterday’s CBS Sunday Morning they did a great segment on the band’s recent space bubble concerts. Finally, the band is releasing The Soft Bulletin Companion on Record Store Day (June 12) via Warner Records. Check out the tour dates and CBS Sunday Morning segment below.

In a blink and you’re miss it moment, CBS Sunday Morning use a photo of the band taken by our own Wendy Lynch Redfern for our third issue back in 2002. It’s the wow speech bubble photo at the 30-second moment.

The Soft Bulletin Companion was originally only sent out to press, radio, friends, and family. It contains B-sides, outtakes, and early mixes of songs from the classic 1999 album, as well as some stereo mixes of songs from their 1997 album Zaireeka (which was released on four CDs to be played at once). It’ll be released on vinyl for the first time and is limited to 16,000 copies worldwide on a 2-LP double silver vinyl edition.

The Flaming Lips’ last album was 2020’s American Head, which made it to #47 on our Top 100 Albums of 2020 list.

The band recently covered Bob Dylan’s 1969 song “Lay Lady Lay” as a part of the upcoming Dylan Revisited compilation from UK magazine Uncut.
