    And the name of REM's fourteenth studio album is… Accelerate. Due out in April, the album features the on-point production skills of Jacknife Lee (Bloc Party/U2) and such songs as "Until the Day is Done," "Living Well is the Best Revenge," "Mr. Richards," "Staring Down the Barrel of Middle Distance," and "I'm Gonna DJ."

    Here's what Michael Stipe had to say in a recent Q interview: "[Accelerate] is the fastest [album] we've made in 20 years … I think the songs on Around the Sun are great, but in the process of recording we lost our focus as a band. Now, that focus is back. And it's razor sharp."
