(Radio.com) Some bands don't even have 131 songs in their entire discographies. R.E.M. has that amount on one rarities collection alone. The rock act announced Tuesday (May 20) a new collection of tracks culled from their time with Warner Bros.

Complete Rarities: Warner Bros. 1988-2011 features B-sides, live tracks, covers and other rarities, Consequence of Sound reports. Amazon has launched a preorder here.

The anthology, which totals 131 different tracks, includes covers of Iggy Pop ("Funtime"), Leonard Cohen ("First We Take Manhattan") and the Troggs ("Love is All Around").

Additionally, the set features different mixes of some of the band's iconic hits, such as an instrumental version of "Orange Crush" and a "hip mix" of "Shiny Happy People." more on this story
