R.E.M. Make New Album, Videos, & youTube Channel

Posted by Molli Fire on Wednesday, 23May07

A few weeks ago, R.E.M. announced on their website that they would begin recording their new album in Vancouver this month.  Today they posted a few pix from the scene in the Great Northern.  Here is my fave, one that will make any studio musician drool:

They will continue recording in Vancouver with Jacknife Lee (Bloc Party and Kasabian) until mid-June.  Then, they head over to Ireland for 5 already sold out shows in Dublin, and will continue recording the new album on the green isle.  Red Pill Music reported today that Jacknife Lee revealed a little more info on the project:

“We’ve got a great batch of songs, and can’t wait to put them down.” “R.E.M. are consistently one of the Great Bands, if not the greatest,” Lee said in the statement. “The new songs they’ve written are some of their most exciting and visceral yet. They’re a beacon for any band wishing to remain honest and challenging.”

R.E.M. also announced on their website that they have created a youTube channel for R.E.M. hq:
where you can find 25 great videos from the band, including this one uploaded from Vancouver 5 hours ago:
