I know where I’m going to be on June 19th.
Chicago Tribune – “Michael Stipe couldn’t go onstage without his espresso Thursday, so the few hundred fans, friends and journalists gathered at the taping of “Austin City Limits” on the University of Texas campus had to wait.”
Hear the Stubbs show from NPR
Billboard – “The roll-out, the first of its kind for a major act, will allow fans to stream and share “Accelerate” in its entirety beginning March 24, a week ahead of the album’s April 1 release date.”
Job number 1. Sign up on ilike.
Palm Beach Post – “We’re R.E.M.,” Michael Stipe said, charmingly leaning on his mic stand, “and this is what we do.”
Great piece. I love the song-by-song breakdown.
StereoGum – “Half of the tracks on Accelerate clock in at under three minutes, and a quarter of them are just barely over the two minute mark. In total, Accelerate zooms on by in 34 minutes, making it the shortest full-length in the band’s discography.”
Thanks Connie for sending the link.
