The now-disbanded 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 video, seen above, bills the new compilation as “the final album” from R.E.M., and features performance footage and clips of the band’s music videos over its 30-year career before ending with a rapid-fire montage, set to “Orange Crush,” of R.E.M.’s evolving logo.
Check out the full tracklist for Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage here.

Rumor: REM may play a final concert in Atlanta, GA next month, including Bill Berry. Stay tuned.
This is a very, very, very bad rumor if not true. (somehow, I do see it being very true though…)
I know there’s a BIG buzz on murmurs from fans on how they announced their retirement, some feel it was a very cold way to do it, without a final show or something.
