If ever a band proved you can play rock’n’roll and retain your integrity, that band was R.E.M. as the best R.E.M. songs prove.
The best guitar solos – from driving riffs to technical displays of mastery – make a song complete and more often than not, transcend the track entirely.
The song also features on the new, deluxe edition of the band’s ‘New Adventures In Hi-Fi’.
With their ‘Monster’ album, R.E.M. got back to making what guitarist Peter Buck described as a "real noisy rock’n’roll record”.
Due to be issued in a variety of formats, the much-acclaimed album's new edition will be out on October 29.
The track also features on the new reissue of the band’s classic ‘Radio Free Europe’ single, out on July 23.
The reissue be presented in the record's original format: as a 45-RPM single housed in a black and white jacket featuring photography by Michael Stipe.
'Song Exploder' is based on the acclaimed podcast of the same name re-imagined by Oscar-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville.
‘A Stirling Performance’ documents R.E.M.’s historic Scottish shows, capturing interviews with locals, fans, and the band.
R.E.M. were one of the most influential and beloved rock bands of the last 40 years, comprised of Michael Stipe, Bill Berry, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills.
The new, expanded, 25th anniversary edition of 'Monster' is set for release on 1 November.
R.E.M. have shared a live version of ‘Undertow’ exclusively with uDiscover Music. It will feature on the 25th-anniversary edition of ‘Monster’.
R.E.M. originally cut the track for 'Reveal' and then re-recorded the track for 2004's 'Around The Sun'.
Available on all formats, the album's new edition offers a host of new audio and video extras.
Available for the first time on vinyl in over 15 years, the album includes 18 songs from the Athens, GA alt-rockers, spanning 1988’s 'Green' to 2001’s 'Reveal', plus two previously unreleased tracks.
