New Music From Michael Stipe of R.E.M.
Michael Stipe has another new song coming, but you'll have to head to an art exhibit in New York City to get a listen. The song "This Is Our Time" is for the show called "An Introduction to Nameless Love" by curator Jonathan Berger, which opens at Participant Inc September 9th. The lyrics will be displayed on a large metal structure in the middle of the exhibit.

Then he said, ‘Are you Lewis Capaldi?’" Well, the guy was a fan and handed over a key. Lewis went on to say, "For me that was the day when it all came together.
