ROB ZOMBIE To Release First-Ever Career Retrospective

ROB ZOMBIE will release his first-ever career retrospective, titled "Past, Present & Future", on September 23 through Geffen Records. The two-disc set brings together a CD of 19 digitally remastered selections — including two new recordings — and a DVD of 10 music videos, including three previously unreleased.

Produced by Zombie, who designed the 36-page booklet, the compilation features six Grammy-nominated tracks and spans his career from 1992 to 2003. CD selections include WHITE ZOMBIE and solo hits plus soundtrack rarities and two brand new songs recorded in July ("Two-Lane Blacktop" and "Girl On Fire"). The earlier 2003 tracks were culled from the soundtrack to the Zombie-directed hit horror flick "House Of 1000 Corpses" ("Pussy Liquor" and a collaboration with Lionel Richie and hardcore female rapper Trina on THE COMMODORES '70s hit "Brick House 2003") and a cover of "Blitzkrieg Bop" from the RAMONES tribute album "We're A Happy Family", produced by Johnny Ramone and Zombie.

All but one of the videos on the greatest hits DVD were directed by Zombie, including "More Human Than Human", a 1995 MTV Video Music Award winner for Best Hard Rock Video. The other previously released videos are for "Dragula", "Living Dead Girl", "Superbeast", "Never Gonna Stop (The Red Red Kroovy)", "Feel So Numb" and the non-Zombie-helmed "Thunder Kiss '65". The never-before-released videos are for the 1998 "Hellbilly Deluxe" songs "Demonoid Phenomenon", "Return Of The Phantom Stranger" and "Spookshow Baby".

Zombie's last studio album was 2001's "The Sinister Urge". He has no plans to record new material anytime soon.
