I was raised on the college-radio rock of R.E.M., so I’m going to assume that the actor Aaron Johnson was too, because he’s my age, and because, based on R.E.M.’s “Uberlin” video (directed by his wife, Sam Taylor-Wood), he clearly likes this band a lot, and is a really great but very secondhand-embarrassment inducing dancer. More power to him for his confidence? The song’s the European single from the band’s 15th (that’s right) very solid record, Collapse Into Now, which drops Tuesday. Watch it below:
R.E.M. – “Uberlin” Video
Raekwon, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Danny Brown, YG, Action Bronson, Young Thug, and more show up.
He also makes a quick cameo as a detective.
“Bubs” is a collaboration with PC Music’s A.G. Cook.
Another new track to follow up last week’s “A Kick To The Face.”
