The artist and director Sam Taylor-Wood directed this kinetic video for mid-temp, slightly melancholic rocker “ÜBerlin,” an old-school standout from R.E.M.’s solid 15th album Collapse Into Now. It stars her fiance (and her Nowhere Boy star) Aaron Johnson, who blends parkour, modern dance, and intense R.E.M. fandom during a walk down the street.
Also, Stipe returned to Fallon last night, this time with something to promote. He talks about the new album, a forthcoming “short film”/video James Franco’s directing for a Collapse song, etc.
