R.E.M. To Release 4-LP ‘Unplugged’ Album For Record Store Day

R.E.M. unpluggedDespite having called it a day as a band, R.E.M. will find themselves in stores again this Record Store Day with a new collection of acoustic performances. The 4-record set will be available on vinyl for the day before seeing release on CD and digital formats on May 20th.

The set collects two concerts the band performed for MTV’s Unplugged series. The first, released in 1991, came as the band were promoting their smash hit Out Of Time. The second concert, recorded in 2001, is a more career-spanning set which features songs from the band’s first two albums as a trio, Up and Reveal. Both sets will feature performances that did not make the original MTV telecasts.
