New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Flaming Lips release their first official "hits" and rarities collection on Warner Bros. Records. Greatest Hits Vol. 1 compiles eleven WBR-era singles and album tracks on a single black vinyl pressing. This is the first time The Lips have presented singles from Transmissions From The Satellite Heart (1993), Clouds Taste Metallic (1995), The Soft Bulletin (1999), Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (2002), At War With The Mystics (2006),Embryonic (2009) and their current album Oczy Mlody (2017) on a single disc. The Deluxe digital and Deluxe 3-CD Edition of Greatest Hits Vol.1 significantly expands the concept of their "hits" and gathers some of their best-loved album tracks from the aforementioned albums plus deep cuts from their WBR album debut, Hit To Death In The Future Head (1992), along with music from, Zaireeka (1997), The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends (2012) and The Terror (2013). The Deluxe Edition also compiles a generous hatful of International single B-sides, studio outtakes and several previously unreleased tracks to present an essential view into the extraordinary body of work from one of the most influential and enduring rock bands of all-time. Hits Vol.1 boasts 52 essential tracks in all representing their entire Warner Bros. Records catalog.

Each of the tracks in this collection has been remastered from the original tape sources by The Flaming Lips and long-time producer Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios. The resultant sound quality of these recordings is now far superior to all previously released versions.

As previously announced Rhino Entertainment and Warner Bros. Records celebrate Oklahoma's favorite sons with an ambitious reissue program, including two releases that spotlight the joyous weirdness the band recorded for Restless Records before signing with Warner Bros. in 1991. The single disc SCRATCHING THE DOOR, released on April 20, and SEEING THE UNSEEABLE: THE COMPLETE STUDIO RECORDINGS OF THE FLAMING LIPS 1986-1990, a 6-CD box coming on June 29, gather up early Lips albums and rare cuts also remastered by the band and Fridmann. Together, this set of reissues and compilations represents The Lips entire 35 year history in this, the band's 35th Anniversary year. During their tenure, The Lips have become one of the most enduring and influential bands of their generation, or any other. The three-time Grammy® Award-winners have come a long way from their earliest days when Wayne's older brother Mark Coyne was the bands lead vocalist and a series of drummers came and went. Various line-up changes, non-stop touring and an indefatigable drive to become a respected songwriting team and a live attraction without peer, have brought The Flaming Lips to become the globally-respected force of nature they are today.

Direct to consumer bundles and brand new Lips Greatest Hits-themed merchandise are available. The Greatest Hits Deluxe bundle includes the triple CD set 3-CD set along with 24"x24" screen printed poster. The Greatest Hits Vinyl bundle includes the 11 track black vinyl album, also with the screen printed poster. A new line of Greatest Hits merchandise is also available separately and includes a limited edition custom embroidered crewneck sweatshirt, and all new short sleeve and long sleeve T-shirt designs utilizing the artwork from the album.
