R.E.M: New Album Features Eddie Vedder & Patti Smith


R.E.M. have revealed that the title of their 15th studio album will be Collapse Into Now. The album will be released in Spring 2011 by Warner Bros. Records.

The band re-teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer Jacknife Lee, who produced the band’s acclaimed previous album Accelerate, to make Collapse Into Now. R.E.M. and Lee recorded the album in New Orleans at the Music Shed and in Berlin at the famed Hansa Studios. Additional recording and mixing were done at the venerable Blackbird Studio in Nashville.

In an interview with Spin, Mike Mills revealed that three of the twelve tracks off the upcoming album will feature Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith and Peaches. Vedder sings on "It Happened Today," Patti Smith lends her vocals to "Blue," and Peaches guests on an unnamed track.
