R.E.M.'s Stipe on Stephen Colbert's Rock and Roll Shelf of Fame

R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe made a surprise appearance on The Colbert Report last week.

During the appearance, host Stephen Colbert said goodbye to the band by putting Stipe on his Rock and Roll Shelf of Fame (literally.) They were then joined by guest Brian Eno for an impromptu acapella rendition of "Lean On Me." Watch the surreal clip here.

Stipe made the appearance to promote the release of their final album, R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 - 2011, which will be released by Warner Bros. Records this Tuesday November 15th.

The album is a 40-song career-spanning retrospective that for the first time ever collects songs from R.E.M.'s entire back catalog, including the band's early years on the IRS label in addition to their Warner Bros. Records catalog, as well as three new songs
