This October, the Flaming Lips are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 1999 album The Soft Bulletin with a limited edition vinyl reissue, which will be available exclusively through subscription service Vinyl Me, Please.

Pressed on mustard yellow vinyl and accompanied by new artwork designed by frontman Wayne Coyne, the 2-LP reissue includes the album's original 13-song tracklist.

“The Soft Bulletin is a record that’s always with us… and we’re always considering it… we’re always playing it… we’re always celebrating it,” Coyne said of the reissue in a statement.
