R.E.M to release Green 25th Anniversary Edition

R.E.M are to release a deluxe, 25th anniversary reissue of Green.

The reissue will include a remastered version of the band's 1988 album accompanied by a live live disc taken from a November 10, 1989 show in Greensboro, North Carolina, the penultimate date of the band's Green World Tour. Sleeve notes will be written by Uncut's editor, Allan Jones.

Green was R.E.M’s sixth studio album and their first for major label Warners. It includes the breakthrough singles, “Stand” and “Orange Crush”.

Rhino are reportedly releasing the album on May 14 both digitally and on CD, while the remastered album will also be available on 180-gram vinyl.

As well as material from Green, the live disc includes songs like "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" and "The One I Love," along side early versions of "Low" and "Belong" which would eventually appear on the follow-up to Green, Out Of Time.

Meanwhile, R.E.M will release a limited edition, five-track EP, Live In Greensboro, on Record Store Day this year. It will contain five songs taken from the same Greensboro show which aren't included on the Green reissue. Tracks include "I Remember California," "So. Central Rain" and "Feeling Gravitys Pull". Each copy will come with a replica R.E.M. patch from the Green Tour.

The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2015

This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.
