R.E.M. was one of the biggest acts in the 90s. Beginning as stars of the college charts they soon crossed over into mainstream success. Their albums “Out of Time” “Automatic for the People” and “Monster” were back-to-back hits and the band was selling out stadiums around the globe. However, as with many wildly successful bands, their success slowed. All that is about to change with the release of their new album “Collapse into Now”, which is being critically-hailed as their best in 20 years, reaffirming them as a vital and relevant fixture of the music scene. The band has recaptured the magic that catapulted them to super stardom and crafted an album that will simultaneously please old fans and gain lots of new ones.
We are thrilled to have an exclusive look at the video for the track “All the Best”. The song is an intimate and reflective ballad reminiscent of R.E.M.’s best early work. The video was directed by Jim Herbert, whose bio includes previous work with R.E.M. including “Left of Reckoning,” “End of World,” and “Turn You Inside Out” on location in Italy.
