Michael Stipe: “I Think I Will Sing Again … Maybe”

Watch Michael Stipe Reminisce About R.E.M. On CBS This Morning

Michael Stipe has kept busy since R.E.M. broke up three years ago, but he took some time to reflect on his former band’s three-decade-long career in a new interview on CBS This Morning. The interview is interspersed with a quick rundown of the band’s history, intercut with footage from the new REMTV boxset that was released last month. He also noncommittally says that he may sing again: “That’s maybe an exclusive, but I think I will sing again. […] Not soon … maybe … I don’t know.” He is, however, emphatic about R.E.M. never reuniting: “I love those guys very much and I respect them hugely as musicians and as songwriters and everything, but I just don’t want to do that thing that people do,” adding that he “despises nostalgia.” Watch the full interview below.
