Tag: Part Lies Part Heart Part Truth Part Garbage: 1982-2011
This week’s new releases include ‘Ersatz G.B.,’ the 29th studio album from The Fall, plus new best-ofs from R.E.M. (‘Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage’) and Wall of Voodoo (‘Lost Weekend’), and expanded reissue of Cabaret Voltaire’s ‘Johnny YesNo’ soundtrack and Curt Smith’s solo effort ‘Mayfield.’
There’s still more than a week before R.E.M.’s career-capping best-of is released, but, thanks to the folks NPR, you can now stream the full 40-song ‘Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011’ — which, for fans, means 37 songs you know and love plus those three new tracks.
It’s not due for release until Tuesday, but the brand-new R.E.M. single ‘We All Go Back To Where We Belong’ — one of three new tracks on the band’s upcoming, and posthumous, best-of — hit the web Sunday night, and you can take an early listen right here.
R.E.M. today released a 2:46-long trailer for its upcoming, career-spanning best-of — the 40-song ‘Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011’ — that also offers up the first taste of ‘We All Go Back To Where We Belong,’ one of three new tracks that will appear on the set, which lands Nov. 15.
The now-disbanded R.E.M. today unveiled the tracklist and cover art for its forthcoming, career-spanning best-of — the 40-song ‘Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011’ — and announced that ‘We All Go Back to Where We Belong,’ one of three new tracks on the set, will be issued as a single next month.
The now-defunct R.E.M. will release its first-ever career-spanning greatest-hits collection — ‘Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011’ — in November, and Rolling Stone reports the set will include “a handful of tracks” recorded earlier this year.
