REM to reissue "Monster" on 25th Anniversary

September 4, 2019

R.E.M will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their landmark 1994 album Monster. It's just another installment of the band's 25th anniversary reissues.

The reissue will include the original producer, Scott Litt. According to a press release: 

“The original 1995 version was dense in guitars and feedback with the vocals mixed within the sonic wall, but on this alternative version the guitars are pulled back and the vocals pushed forward to create a more open sound and showcase often-revealing lyrics."

It will also include 15 previously unreleased demos, a live performance from the 1995 corresponding tour and documentary film Road Movie.
