We knew it was coming and now The Flaming Lips have now announced the 20th anniversary box set editions of their great 2002 album, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. The 100-track 6-CD set is out November 25 and the 56-track 5-LP vinyl set will be out spring 2023.

Additionally, The Flaming Lips have announced two special Yoshimi shows where they'll play the album in full at London's Eventim Apollo on April 28 and Washington, DC's The Anthem on May 25.

Both the vinyl and CD box sets include the original album remastered plus rare b-sides and other non-LP songs (including Japan-only bonus tracks), and radio sessions. Those include a long-requested instrumental version of "Do You Realize?," b-side “Thank You Jack White (For the Fiber-Optic Jesus You Gave Me)," covers of Radiohead's "Knives Out" and Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head" and lots more.

The CD box also includes the Fight Test and Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell EPs as well as two live albums: Paradise Lounge, Boston, October 27 2002 and The Forum, London, UK, January 22, 2003.

The Flaming Lips say that everything that's on the CD set will also make its way to vinyl, separately, in 2023.

You can check out the tracklists for both the CD and vinyl sets below. Read our look back on the album here.

The Flaming Lips are also on tour now and hit the NYC area on October 20 at The Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ. All upcoming dates are listed below.
