The Stooges' documentary "Gimme Danger" made a lot of noise at film festivals and in Detroit last year.

Now fans will get to take some of the noise home with them.

"Gimme Danger: Music From The Motion" picture comes out digitally Jan. 13, featuring 14 tracks from the soundtrack. Almost all are from the Ann Arbor-formed Stooges, including selections from the group's three albums as well as rarities and outtakes such as "Lost In The Future," "I Got a Right," "I'm Sick Of You" and "Asthma Attack." The set also features songs by frontman Iggy Pop's pre-Stooges bands the Iguanas and the Prime Movers, as well as "Ramblin' Rose" by fellow Michiganders the MC5.

A CD version of the album is due out Feb. 24, while a vinyl edition follows on April 7.

Directed by Jim Jarmusch -- who described it as "a love letter to possibly the greatest band in rock 'n' roll history" -- "Gimme Danger" was an Official Selection at festivals in Cannes, New York and Toronto. It also screened at the Detroit Film Theatre, where Pop and Jarmusch appeared for a special Q&A premiered -- and the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor last fall.

Details on a home video release are expected soon.
