R.E.M. have completed work on their 15th studio album, the band has announced on their web site. The Georgia rockers put the finishing touches on the new disc in Nashville, after recording the bulk of it with producer Jacknife Lee at New Orleans' Music Shed and Berlin's Hansa Studios. "I will not report on the sound or the dimension of the recordings so far, to my ears it all sounds like quite a wonderful set of songs," R.E.M. manager Bertis Downs wrote in an update from the Berlin studio earlier this summer. R.E.M. say the album will be released in spring of next year.
