The Flaming Lips celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic 2002 album, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, with the announcement of an expansive box set that also includes B-sides, demos, remixes, radio sessions, two concerts, and other assorted rarities from the era.

Pre-order/pre-save the 6 CD and 5 LP box sets of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: 20th Anniversary Edition HERE

The CD set includes over 50 tracks never released and dozens of rare tracks. The LP box set has 40 tracks never released on vinyl and over 30 previously unreleased tracks. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: 20th Anniversary Edition will be available, via Warner Records, on all streaming services and as a 6 CD box set (featuring 100 tracks) on 25 November to mark the album’s 20th anniversary year.

A 5 LP package (featuring 56 tracks) will land on 14 April 2023 – released later than the CD box set due to the long vinyl production timeline. Additionally, there will be a limited edition D2C exclusive edition of the 20th Anniversary Deluxe 5 LP Vinyl box set pressed on Baby Pink vinyl – also released on 14 April. Over the course of 2023, all the material released in the 6 CD box set will also make their way to vinyl. The two live albums included in the set, and the 25-minute demo Psychedelic Hypnotist Daydream will be available as separate vinyl releases. Additionally, the Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell and Fight Test EPs will be released on vinyl for the first time in Spring 2023.

To further celebrate the anniversary, The Flaming Lips have confirmed two shows that will feature the album performed in its entirety. Click HERE for ticket information.
