“It’s My Life” and “Livin’ on a Prayer” are just two of the tunes that will be included on a pair of Bon Jovi compilations due Nov. 9 from Island Records.

The 16-track, single-disc “Greatest Hits” contains the aforementioned songs and other signature material, as well as two new tracks, one of which is the single “What Do You Got?”

“Greatest Hits: The Ultimate Collection” is a 28-track, two-disc set featuring the “Greatest Hits” CD, plus a second disc of fan favorites (such as “Bed of Roses” and “Keep the Faith”), as well as the third and fourth new songs that were recorded specifically for this project.

In addition to “What Do You Got?”, the other three new songs are “The More Things Change,” “No Apologies” and “This Is Love, This Is Life.”

“Music marks milestones in all our lives,” singer Jon Bon Jovi said in a press release issued Aug. 26. “These songs have stood the test of time, and they remind us all where we came from, even as we keep our eyes [toward] the future.”
