R.E.M. to Unveil Tracks From New Album

R.E.M. to Unveil Tracks From New Album

R.E.M. plans to give fans a taste of tracks from their upcoming album during a series of gigs in Dublin this summer.
In a statement posted Friday on the R.E.M. Web site, the band said it would hold a five-night "working rehearsal" for the album at Dublin's Olympia Theatre June 30, July 1 and July 3-5.
Singer Michael Stipe said the concerts would provide "the great start we need for our next album's work."
"I intend to hit the ground running," he said.
Stipe and bandmates Peter Buck and Mike Mills are due to begin work on the as-yet-untitled 14th album this spring with producer Jacknife Lee.
Formed in Athens, Ga. almost 30 years ago, R.E.M. were college radio favorites in the 1980s with songs like "Radio Free Europe" and "Pretty Persuasion" before becoming mainstream stars with 1990s hits including "Losing My Religion" and "Everybody Hurts."
Their 13th album, "Around the Sun," was released in 2004.
