Eddie Vedder‘s Ukulele Songs is coming back to vinyl.

A reissue of the Pearl Jam frontman’s sophomore solo album will be released May 6, marking the first time the record’s been pressed to wax since its original release in 2011.

The collection will be available in Standard and Deluxe editions, both of which include all 16 songs from the original album. The Deluxe arrives in exclusive expanded packaging including a 16-page booklet and a lithograph.

Ukulele Songs, as the title suggests, found Vedder trading a guitar for Hawaii’s signature instrument to strum along to set of originals and covers. It was Vedder’s most recent full-length solo effort until this year’s Earthling, which was released this past February.

Vedder just wrapped up a solo tour in support of Earthing last month. He’ll return to the road with Pearl Jam for a European tour in June.
