Don't Expect A Michael Stipe Solo Album?

10/31/2011
.
(Gibson) Mike Mills has expressed doubts that Michael Stipe will record a solo album any time in the near future. Speaking to Mojo, the bassist for the newly disbanded R.E.M. said the singer's interests lie more in the visual arts than in music.

"I don't think [music] is where his passion lies," Mills said. "I think he wants to be in the visual arts. I imagine Michael will do a lot of sculpture and photography. I think those are his big interests now." Mills also recently said he doubts R.E.M. will ever take the stage again to perform together.

In other R.E.M.-related news, actress Kirsten Dunst is spotlighted in one of two videos made for the band's final single, "We All Go Back Where We Belong." The track will appear on R.E.M.'s forthcoming greatest hits set, Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982-2011, which is slated for release on November 15. Poet and performance artist John Giorno is spotlighted in a second video made for the same song. Watch the "Dunst" video here.
