Michael Stipe has taken to Instagram to share a snippet of a new solo song called “Future, If Future”.
He released it to coincide with the March For Our Lives gun control rallies that took place across the US this weekend (March 25). Listen below:
Despite occasional collaborations with the likes of Courtney Love and Fischerspooner, Stipe has yet to release any solo material since the break-up of REM in 2011. Speaking to Uncut in January he said: “Am I doing other music at the moment? Yes I am.”
The May 2018 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – with Johnny Marr on the cover. Elsewhere in the issue, you’ll find exclusive new interviews with John Fogerty, Dan Auerbach, Shirley Collins, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, John Prine and many more.
