New R.E.M. Video – “Until The Day Is Done”

In the post about R.E.M’s computer-animated video for “Mansized Wreath” (the one handled heavily by Toronto-based advertising agency Crush, Inc., who also handled “Hollow Man“), I mentioned that when discussing politics, it’d make sense to be a tad more human. Bingo: Following Accelerate’s initial more La Blogothèque aesthetic, “Until The Day Is Done” was shot in grainy, contrasty black and white at a show in Dublin. You get R.E.M., their music, and none of the ham-fisted computer animation.

An Accelerate flashback: This is the song we first heard via Anderson Cooper. Much to Colbert’s chagrin.
