R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe Announces Debut Solo Single Your Capricious Soul

Thursday, 03 October 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Michael Stipe has announced his debut solo single.

Your Capricious Soul will initially be available on October 5 from the R.E.M. vocalist's website for 77 cents, with an option to download the song for free.

A video by filmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson will accompany the release, which coincides with the International Rebellion climate justice protests on October 7, with proceeds from the song going toward Extinction Rebellion. Stipe said:

"I took a long break from music, and I wanted to jump back in. I love Your Capricious Soul – it’s my first solo work. I want to add my voice to this exciting shift in consciousness. Extinction Rebellion gave me the incentive to push the release and not wait. Our relationship to the environment has been a lifelong concern, and I now feel hopeful—optimistic, even. I believe we can bring the kind of change needed to improve our beautiful planet earth, our standing and our place on it."

Additionally, R.E.M. will celebrate the 25th anniversary of 'Monster' with a deluxe reissue out on November 1.
