R.E.M. are showing signs of a reboot, with the release of a new single Mine Smell Like Honey, which will be followed by a brand new album, Collapse Into Now, due date set for March 7 (so it won’t be a long wait). I’m not sure what the video is about, but it gets funny after a while.
Hearing that these guys are about to release a new album wasn’t much of a reason for excitement – thank you very much Accelerate. Their previous effort (look four words to the left) seemed like they too have been infected with that terrible disease that makes bands think they are gods and legends because they’ve been around for so long, that they can put out boring rock records and there’ll still be plenty of boring rock critics to kiss their boring rock asses.
