R.E.M. may be planning to release their rare, fan club-only single releases in a special charity box set.
The band produced a limited edition two-track single every year from 1988-2011, and only 6,000 of each were pressed, which were given away to members of the band's fan club. The releases included spoof Christmas songs, covers and collaborations.
Guitarist Peter Buck tells BBC News that he would like to put out the band's special releases sometime in the future:
"There were like 24 of them, which makes about 50 songs. We'll put them in a big boxset for charity one day . . . I just liked the idea. I was never in the Beatles fan club but . . . I really liked the fact you would get a weird thing in the mail every year. So every year, REM put out a record. It was all material that had never been released anywhere else."
