The album is a 40-song career-spanning retrospective that collects, for the first time ever, songs from ’s entire back catalog, including the Athens, Georgia band’s years on both the IRS label (1982 to 1987) and Warner Bros. Records (1988 to 2011).

A brand-new song, ‘We All Go Back To Where We Belong’, goes to radio and will be available for sale on October 18th.

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