R.E.M. Release Two Videos For Their New Song "We All Go Back To Where We Belong"

R.E.M. keeps it simple yet stunning for their first music video post band split for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong". The track has not one but two videos, one featuring actress Kirsten Dunst and the other featuring artist/poet/activist John Giorno. Appearing on the band's upcoming greatest hits record titled "R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 - 2011", out November 15th, this could be the last R.E.M. video ever made (unless the word reunion comes into play).

Check out both videos here:

Both black and white films for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong" capture their subjects in stark relief using a strong key light and shot with a stationary camera, an effect that Stipe describes as lending "gravity and beauty" to the proceedings.

Beautiful indeed...
