R.E.M., â€œCollapse Into Nowâ€ (out March 8)
To be sure, the release of a new R.E.M. album doesn’t garner the excitement that it once did, but it’s still cause for celebration. Michael Stipe, Pete Buck and Mike Mills recruit such guests as Stipe’s best bud, Patti Smith; Eddie Vedder and Peaches for the Jacknife Lee-produced album. Listen to first single, the dense, ‘60s-influenced “Discoverer,” here.
