After re-releasing Soft Bulletin Companion on vinyl for Record Store Day's June drop, The Flaming Lips are mass-releasing the collection of rarities on multiple formats, including vinyl, CD and digital.

The project was originally released as a promo CD to correspond with the Lips' 1999 album The Soft Bulletin. It consisted of unreleased material, outtakes, early mixes, B-sides, international bonus tracks, and stereo versions of songs from Zaireeka. The new version will also include a previously unreleased track: an early mix of “1000 ft. Hands.”

Soft Bulletin Companion will be available to the masses this Friday (July 16). The Lips are also heading out on a massive world tour that sees them traversing North America and the UK over the course of the next year. Check out a full list of tour dates here and the Soft Bulletin Companion tracklist below.
