Hear new R.E.M.: "Mine Smell Like Honey"

R.E.M.’s new album, “Collapse Into Now,” is due out on March 8, but there are plenty of songs kickin’ around for you to check out in advance of the release.

“Discoverer” was offered by the band as a free download last month; “It Happened Today” – featuring Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, has already surfaced, and now a third song – the first radio single from the album – is now online, too.

“Mine Smell Like Honey” - which will hit radio on January 18 - is a bouncy, uptempo rocker with Mike Mills’ backing vocals soaring over lead singer Michael Stipe’s voice.
