New R.E.M. Featuring Eddie Vedder

A new R.E.M. track, It Happened Today, was leaked on the web sometime earlier this week. [Update: The track wasn’t leaked. It was given as a free download to those who pre-ordered R.E.M.’s forthcoming album on iTunes, which will be released on March 8th.]

The track features Eddie Vedder in some capacity, but it’s not clear how. He’s obviously singing background vocals from about halfway through the track and on, and there’s a good chance he’s playing acoustic guitar on the song, but who knows.

Either way, it’s always nice to hear some Eddie (and some new R.E.M.), so enjoy that track, and enjoy one of their earlier collaborations.
