Exclusive: R.E.M. Strips Down in Powerful New Video for 'Discoverer'



R.E.M.'s new video for "Discoverer" from their forthcoming LP Collapse Into Now is as straightforward and traditional as their  recent video for "Mine Smell Like Honey" was bizarre. In "Discoverer" the band plays a powerful, seemingly live version of the song in a large rehearsal space.

This may be as close as R.E.M. fans will get to seeing the group live this year because of their surprising decision not to tour. Collapse Into Now hits shelves on March 8th. It features guest appearances by Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith, Lenny Kaye and Joel Gibb.
