Synth-wave maestro John Maus is releasing a collection of rarities and previously unreleased material entitled… well, just that.

Dating back to 2003, several of its sixteen tracks have already been heard as part of various compilations. The CMU approved ‘No Title (Molly)’ – as appears on Domino’s previously reported Record Store Day flexi-disc thing ‘Smugglers Way’ – for instance.

One track from the new record, 2004’s ‘Mental Breakdown’, can be streamed here, beneath which you’ll note a list of the LP’s other featured tracks:

North Star
The Law
Castles In The Grave
Angel Of The Night
Mental Breakdown
Big Dumb Man
No Title (Molly)
All Aboard
This Is The Beat
My Hatred Is Magnificent
The Fear
Fish With Broken Dreams
Rock the Bone
I Don’t Eat Human Beings

You can also gaze upon the celestial pink orb (aka German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans’ 2004 work ‘Venus Transit’) that is to be the rarity record’s cover image here.
