Thank you NPR for
leaking streaming another REM song off the highly anticipated (at least in my head) Collapse Into Now! This one is a lovely ballad very reminiscent of Automatic For The People in it’s flow & organicness (is that a word?). Lyrically, it’s not as cryptic as Stipe is prone to be, but maybe, knowing what the fuck he’s actually singing about is a good thing?
Here’s what Stipe told NPR about the song:
It’s a very quiet and very meditative song dedicated to New Orleans — about New Orleans.
Anyways.. head over to NPR for the rest of the story & the song… Enjoy!
I’m pretty sure this album should be leaking any day now. Keep an eye on the googles! But for now, we got 3 songs. What do you think of the new track?
