It's winter and it will be a (little, we hope) while until we'll have some news on Sziget 2009's line-up. Until then, we found a very good-sounding version of "Losing My Religion" by REM, at Sziget last year. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did.
R.E.M. seems decided to follow the Nine Inch Nails path. The band will release their new album, "Accelerate" online, on ilike.com, a week before it gets in the record stores, on April 1. The band's fans will be able to stream and share the new tracks. "It was one of those ideas that was presented to us and it seemed like a good one.", Michael Stipe says.
R.E.M. has just released a video for the song "Supernatural Superserious", from the new album "Accelerate", that they will be promoting at Sziget this August. Enjoy! [szigetnews]_We6ubpUHZs[/szigetnews]
R.E.M's show at the Royal Albert Hall on March 24 will be aired live on the radio by BBC, on Radio 2. The show, which will be broadcast in its entierty, will be part of the birthday celebrations for the Institute of Fine Arts. R.E.M. will play the Main Stage of the Sziget Festival on the 16th of August.
