Our first taste off R.E.M.’s 15th studio album, Collapse Into Now, arrived this morning in the form of the first (free!) song, “Discoverer,” the LP’s opening track. While it isn’t a hook-laden single, per se, this tune certainly opens the record up with a thrill, ably doing its part to build anticipation for the 11 tracks to come on March 8. (Still looking forward to hearing “Me, Marlon Brando, Marlon Brando and I,” “Alligator Aviator Autopilot Antimatter,” and the Patti Smith-guested cut, “Blue.”)
