Despite announcing their split last week, R.E.M are set to release three brand new songs on a greatest hits album, which is out on November 14.

'We All Go Back To Where We Belong', 'A Month Of Saturdays' and 'Hallelujah' will feature on the 40-song collection 'Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 – 2011'.

The three tracks were recorded in the band’s hometown of Athens, Georgia over the summer with producer Jacknife Lee, after the release of their final album 'Collapse Into Now'.

The album will cover their 31 years as a band from their early days on the IRS label (1982-1987) to their time with Warner Bros. Records (1988-2011). Before their split the band had sold more than 85 million albums across the world. Of compiling the album Mike Mills said:

Working through our music and memories from over three decades was a hell of a journey. We realised that these songs seemed to draw a natural line under the last 31 years of our working together.
