R.E.M. has a new album on the way., and in an effort to get fans involved, the band created a remix project.
Fans are able to remix “It Happened Today”, a song off of the upcoming project Collapse Into Now. R.E.M. uploaded all of the tracks that were used to create the song and are allowing fans to download these songs as a Garageband file or as raw stem audio files. Once they get the files, they can mix them any way that they like and then can upload their creation onto the R.E.M.’s website to share with other fans and the band.
Collapse Into Now will be available March 8, but “It Happened Today” is available as an instant download from iTunes for those who pre-order the album now.
