After a couple of noteworthy lyrical visualizations, R.E.M. presents the first video off their upcoming Collapse Into Now. As suspected, the album's official first single, "Mine Smell Like Honey" receives the video treatment. Directed by Dominic DeJoseph, the clip is a homage to one of Hollywood's aces, Buster Keaton.
"With this one, it's a reference to the old Buster Keaton silent film kind of days of pratfalls and just watching people look like they're getting hurt when they're really not,"
Collapse Into Now is due March 8th through Warner Bros whereas "Mine Smell Like Honey'" will be released as a single on March 7th, as will "Uberlin", which also appears on the LP.
