Thursday, May 4, 2023

The Flaming Lips will unveil a new limited-edition vinyl EP entitled Hypnotist on June 16. Click HERE to pre-order the exclusive pink pressing.

It notably collects four fan favorite tracks previously only available on the 6-CD Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots 20th Anniversary Box Set. Now, they grace the 32-minute Hypnotist giving the songs a vinyl release for the very first time.

The tracklisting notably boasts the immersive 24-minute sonic head-trip “Psychedelic Hypnotist Daydream (demo),” which unfurls as one of the group’s most epic gems to date. Additionally, it includes the “Duck Dodgers Theme (Duck Dodgers Demo: With Wayne Scratch Vocal),” “I Know I’ve Got To Make That Dream The Real Thing (Demo),” and, finally, “Do You Realize?? (Instrumental).”  Click HERE to watch Wayne Coyne revisit the original 4-track recording of “Psychedelic Hypnotist Daydream.”

Other recent vinyl releases include two sought-after fan favorite EPs. Fight Test (on Ruby Red Vinyl) and Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell (Glow In the dark Green Vinyl) are available on limited edition vinyl now. Click HERE to purchase.

Also available now is the Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: 20th Anniversary Edition 6-CD box set (100 tracks), filled with original album & EP tracks, plus a plethora of B-Sides, demos, live radio sessions and previously unreleased rarities. The 5-LP box set (56 tracks) was released on April 14.
