R.E.M. has an anniversary arriving for Automatic For The People. Originally released in 1992, 2017 marks the 25th Anniversary for the classic album that spawned well over eighteen million units of sales. In addition to the massive sales of the album, there were six singles pulled from the set that include “Drive”, “Man On The Moon”, “The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight”, “Everybody Hurts”, “Nightswimming”, and “Find The River”. You’ll be hard pressed to find yourself not familiar with any one of those songs. Plus, if you’re a serious R.E.M. fan, then the entire album is well-known to you.
On November 10, a 25th Anniversary Edition of Automatic For The People is scheduled. For now, there is no information as to what will be included inside this awaited edition. But I’m sure it will be rich with content like its predecessors were.
I’ll update this post as more info becomes available.
