R.E.M. Issues Trailer For Greatest Hits Package (Video)

    So R.E.M. has finally split and the inevitable repackaging of the band’s career can begin in earnest. The 40-song compilation Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage will surface on Nov. 15, with the group’s label no doubt banking on some post-split sympathy purchases from fans. The track listing from that record has some notable omissions, although that’s just an inevitable consequence of R.E.M. having such a long career. A trailer has been issued by Warner Bros. to promote the release, which you can see below—it mainly consists of video clips and a few facts about the band, plus grandiose statements like “Songs that won’t be denied” flashing up on the screen.
