R.E.M. Name Latest Album ‘Accelerate’

Published: 2008-01-02
American rock band R.E.M. has titled their soon-to-be-released fourteenth record Accelerate.

The group's last album was Around the Sun, which came out almost 4 years ago. Accelerate will come out on the 1st of April and is said to include songs such as, "Hollow Man", "Sing for the Submarine" and "Supernatural Superserious".

Jacknife Lee, of Snow Patrol and Bloc Party fame, produced the disc in Dublin and Vancouver, which is supposed to be a lot faster and more guitar-based than previous works.

The band is expected to begin a North American tour in March in support of the record, though no details have yet been made known.
