R.E.M. Releases New Music Video with Kirsten Dunst
By Jack Swiker
Even though alternative rock legends R.E.M. called it quits last month after 31 years together, the band has released two different music videos for a new single – perhaps their last!
The first video for We All Go Back Where We Belong – shot in black and white - stars Kirsten Dunst and is similar to Andy Warhol's screen tests, where the video serves as a moving photograph. In the video, Dunst smiles, laughs, looks embarrassed and experiences a variety of other emotions through the video.
The second video stars artist/poet/activist John Giorno.
Speaking on the video project lead singer Michael Stipe said, "To be able to work with John and Kirsten was a dream I carried since we recorded the song, and their participation completes the song for me."
We All Go Back To Where We Belong is one of three new tracks that will be included in R.E.M.'s upcoming final album, R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982-2011. The album will be a 40 song retrospective from their career.
