R.E.M. reveal making of documentary for ‘Automatic for the People’

By Aaron Lohan

R.E.M. have released a documentary looking at the making of their 1992 breakout eighth album, ‘Automatic for the People’.

It is to coincide with the twenty-fifth anniversary expanded four disc reissue of the record, which was released last month via Craft Recordings. It features previously unreleased material, including twenty never before heard demos from the album’s recording sessions.

Originally forming in Athens, Georgia in 1980, R.E.M. were credited as being one of the first alternative rock bands. They released a plethora of albums, singles, EPs, and live albums until they called it quits in 2011.
