Burt Bacharach turns 85 on Sunday, and to celebrate the milestone, a new compilation album featuring various music stars performing a career-spanning selection of the lauded composer's songs will be released later this month. 

The Art of the Songwriter: Anyone Who Had a Heart - The Best of Burt Bacharach is a two-CD set that boasts 40 tracks recorded by such legendary artists as Aretha Franklin , Dionne Warwick , Elvis Presley , Neil Diamond , Diana Ross & the Supremes , Gladys Knight & the Pips , Tom Jones , The Fifth Dimension and Bacharach himself.

Among the many classic tunes included on the collection, most of which Bacharach co-wrote with late lyricist Hal David , are "I Say a Little Prayer," "Alfie," "Wishin' and Hopin'," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "What's New Pussycat?" and "Walk On By."

The Art of the Songwriter is scheduled to hit stores on May 28.

Meanwhile, Bacharach has penned a new autobiography titled Anyone Who Had a Heart: My Life and Music that was published on Tuesday.  In the book, which was co-written by Robert Greenfield , the songwriter delves into his eventful music career and life, sharing the stories behind his compositions and discussing his turbulent marriages and the tragic suicide of his daughter.
