on November 11, 2016, 3:50pm

R.E.M.’s 1991 classic Out Of Time turns 25 this year, and to celebrate, Concord Bicycle is putting out a jam-packed reissue later this month. The multi-disc collection boasts a never-before-released song as well as a handful of unearthed B-sides and demos, including an early, wordless version of “Shiny Happy People” which today can be streamed below via The Wall Street Journal.

The 25th anniversary reissue of Out of Time officially hits stores on November 18th. For more, hear an early iteration of “Radio Song” without KRS-One and a different take on “Losing My Religion”.

In related news, frontman Michael Stipe was recently interviewed by Alec Baldwin.
