R.E.M.’s most recent effort to give their fans an interactive musical experience continues with the announcement of an exciting new remix project.
The project will be in connection with “It Happened Today”, a track off the band’s upcoming album Collapse Into Now, which is to be produced on Warner Bros. Records on March 8th.
R.E.M. are giving fans the opportunity to remix “It Happened Today” from the ground up by distributing the raw source for the song as both a Garageband file for Apple Macintosh computers, or as raw stem audio files for other platforms.
After creating their own versions of the song, fans can submit their remixes on the band’s website to share with the members of R.E.M. and other fans around the world.
