R.E.M. have announced that their upcoming new album, Collapse Into Now, will be released on March 8th, 2011, by Warner Bros. Records. They have also revealed that the album features a host of very special guests: Patti Smith, Lenny Kaye, Peaches and Eddie Vedder and The Hidden Cameras frontman Joel Gibb.

"Discoverer" is a bold rock track that starts the new record with a bang...
while our uptempo single "Mine Smells Like Honey" is consistent with the sound R.E.M. fans have come to expect from the band.
