Members of R.E.M. Team Up On SF Giants Song "Panda & The Freak"

NEW ALBUM VOL. 2: HIGH AND INSIDE DUE OUT FEB. 2011

You may have heard it in AT&T park already this season, but on the heels of the Giants’ commanding seizure of game 1 of the 2010 World Series last night, baseball-themed rock outfit The Baseball Project have released “Panda & the Freak.” Comprised of Bay Area native and Giants fan Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3), Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Linda Pitmon (Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3, Smack Dab, Golden Smog) the band’s resume is as undeniable as their baseball knowledge. “Panda & the Freak” will appear on their new album Vol. 2: High and Inside due out in Feb. 2011 on Yep Roc Records.

“Panda and the Freak” celebrates the long history of amazing baseball nicknames, concentrating on Giants ace Tim Lincecum and the ninja-like skills of big man Pablo Sandoval. Take a listen below and click here to grab the song on iTunes.
