Echo & The Bunnymen's classic singles compilation Songs to Learn and Sing is coming back to vinyl next month, it was announced today (Jan. 13).

The 11-track set wrapped up the band's first half-decade together, including U.K. hits like "The Cutter," "The Back of Love," "Never Stop" and "The Killing Moon." It also included a brand-new song, "Bring on the Dancing Horses," which became an alternative radio staple and was later included on the soundtrack to the John Hughes classic Pretty in Pink.

A special limited pressing will also be available exclusively online, pressed on splatter colored vinyl and featuring a bonus replica of the band's debut 7" single, "The Pictures on My Wall" b/w "Read It in Books."
