The always awesome REM is prepping the release of their 15th studio album, Collapse Into Now, and bandmember Mike Mills revealed that our beloved PEACHES will be contributing to at least one of the tracks, as well as Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder and Patti Smith!
“With Accelerate we were trying to make a point by making the songs as short and as fast as possible. So we wanted this new one to be more expansive. We wanted to put more variety into it and not limit ourselves to any one type of song. There are some really slow, beautiful songs, there are some nice, mid-tempo ones, and then there are three or four rockers. [It’s a] very personal, very human record. Not only to [singer] Michael [Stipe], but personal and human in the sense of the narrative of the songs, the protagonists of the songs.”
EXCELLENT! This sounds much more like the REM that we know and love!
And we can’t wait to hear a track infused with the teaches of Peaches!
This is going to be so effing amazeballs!
New single NOW, please!
