Good little article with some new info about Blue and these intriguiing tidbits:
After extensive touring behind "Accelerate," however, R.E.M. isn't planning to hit the road for "Collapse Into Now." "It just doesn't feel right," he explains. "We've always gone with our gut instinct on everything, and right now it just didn't feel like touring was the thing we needed to do." He says that "might or might not" hasten R.E.M.'s next album, especially since there's a substantial number of songs and ideas still around that did not make it on "Collapse Into Now."
"Collapse Into Now" also marks the end of R.E.M.'s deal with Warner Bros., but Mills says nothing has been determined about the group's future yet. "We'll sit down sometime in the next few months and decide what we're going to do," he says. "There are a lot of options. We'll just have to assess how we feel and what we want to do." He does, however, expect to see a 25th anniversary edition of "Lifes Rich Pageant" this year, featuring "a lot of demos, some of which I think are actually better than the songs on the record."
