Listen: R.E.M. – “It Happened Today”

I’m so happy R.E.M. are back. Their first song that they released last week, “Discoverer,” from their forthcoming album Collapse Into Now is a solid listen. Now, by clicking play down below, you’ll hear their first official single, “It Happened Today,” featuring the one and only Eddie Vedder. It’s safe to say that Michael Stipe and crew are two for two on new music.



Courtesy of our musical partners in crime (via ) we got our hands on the single for you to listen to as many times as you desire. If you care to download this track (legally!), you’ll have to pre-order Collapse Into Now from iTunes to get the song. BTW, the album will be in stores on March 8th. If you haven’t marked that date on your calendar yet, please do so.
