Look Who's in the Studio!


They released their fourteenth studio album in 2008 entitled, Accelerate, they released a live album, Live at The Olympia, in 2009 and they even made their own documentary. Now, Athens-bred superstars R.E.M. have been reported as being back in the studio working on their follow-up to Accelerate, or their fifteenth studio album . . wow.

R.E.M. will work again with Grammy Award winning producer Jacknife Lee who also collaborated on Accelerate.

In other “In the Studio” news, The Kinks have announced that they are recording a new album.  This will be the band’s first album since 1993’s Phobia.

Ray Davies told Billboard, “"I've been in the studio with a couple of the Kinks, actually.  We've got four, five new songs...and I'm just sort of getting them motivated and seeing what they're playing like, because I haven't played with the Kinks for eight or nine years."
