The Flaming Lips are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Clouds Taste Metallic with a special edition box set of the 1995 classic album. Entitled Heady Nuggs 20 Years After Clouds Taste Metallic 1994-1997, the box set will be released in several configurations, including compact disc and vinyl formats. Pre-orders start today, and those who do will receive a series of instant downloadable tracks at various dates leading up to the release, each a previously unreleased rarity from this collection.

The Official Flaming Lips Store will carry an exclusive numbered and colored vinyl version of the five-LP box set along with three exclusive out-of-print t-shirts and three out-of-print posters, designed by Wayne that were originally sold during the Clouds era, that will be limited to a one time run.
