Win A SIGNED Copy Of R.E.M.\'s New Greatest Hits


After R.E.M. shocked the world on 21 September with the news that they had decided to "call it a day as a band" via a statement on their website, the band have announced that they will release their final album, R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 – 2011, on 14 November - and we are giving away SIGNED copies.

The album is a 40-song career-spanning greatest hits that collects, for the first time ever, songs from R.E.M.'s entire back catalogue, including the pioneering American band's years on both the I.R.S label (1982 to 1987) and Warner Bros. Records (1988 to 2011).

"Working through our music and memories from over three decades was a hell of a journey," says Mike Mills of choosing the songs that appear on R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 – 2011. "We realised that these songs seemed to draw a natural line under the last 31 years of our working together."

The tracks are arranged in a chronological order, taking the listener on a journey through the band's formative years on IRS as they found an identity through a series of spectacularly innovative alternative rock albums, before they released a series of gargantuan rock records that cemented the band's place as stadium rock gods (Green, Automatic For The People, Out Of Time and Monster). Their mid-to-late 90s output saw them move between the dark (New Adventures In Hi-Fi) and the pop (Up, Reveal) before they rediscovered their zeal on a couple of awesome rock records in recent years (Accelerate and Collapse Into Now).

R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 – 2011 tells the story of a band that absolutely never compromised and as a result released some of the greatest and most inventive rock music of the past three decades.
