About a month after announcing their retirement, R.E.M. has released a video for what will likely be their final single, "We All Go Back Where We Belong." The black-and-white video solely depicts actress Kirsten Dunst as she reacts to hearing the song played — sometimes smiling and laughing, at other times pensively nodding along to the music.
The year was 1980 when singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry formed alternative rock band R.E.M. in Athens, Ga. The quartet-turned-trio churned out 15 albums, including Murmur, Out of Time and their most recent release, Collapse Into Now.
Considering that R.E.M. have recently entered their 30th year of existence, any attempt to contextualize in their 14-album back catalog their latest release, the ludicrously and unintentionally self-parodistically titled Collapse into Now, may prove desultory.
Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson busts out his dance moves in R.E.M.’s new video “UBerlin,” directed by his fiancé Sam Taylor-Wood. The song is featured on the band's latest disc Collapse Into Now, their 15th studio album to date.
