The Flaming Lips have released a video for their rare track The Captain.

The song was originally recorded for their classic 1999 album The Soft Bulletin but didn’t make it on to the final cut.

The Captain will feature on the deluxe edition of their upcoming album Greatest Hits Vol. 1, which will be released on June 1 via Warner Bros. Records.

It’ll launch on vinyl along with the deluxe 3CD version, which includes singles, b-sides, rarities, studio outtakes and several previously unreleased tracks.

All the songs have been remastered from the original tape sources by The Flaming Lips and their long-time producer Dave Fridmann.

The Flaming Lips Greatest Hits Vol.1 Deluxe Edition is available for pre-order through Amazon.
