The Flaming Lips will re-release their collaborative album, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, on CD and digitally on June 26th via Warner Bros. Records. The 13-track effort, which features Bon Iver, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, and Nick Cave, among others, was originally released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2012.

Check out the tracklist below, along with the video for the Prefuse 73 collaboration, “Supermoon Made Me Want to Pee.
