How long after you submitted your e-mail did you receive the song? I've waited an entire... five minutes. I'm getting antsy, though!

It came through immediately for me. Maybe try a different email?

Mine actually took a couple of minutes as well, which is weird, because those things are always pretty immediate. So I would say just be patient, because my E-mail eventually showed up.

However, my computer has been an asshole all morning and it's taking forever to download the actual song. I'm getting antsy as well.

It worked after the 3rd e-mail I submitted

Listening now... really digging it. Looking forward to the new record...

Well, my download just flat out didn't work. Something's been fucked up with my computer all day, I wish I knew more about this kind of shit to assess the situation and fix it.

Anyway, they've also finally announced the official release date for the album: March 8th (in the USA, but that's all that anyone really cares about right?)

Lunchbreak with REM. Wow that was the best REM song for me since Reveal. Crossing my fingers that there is more good stuff on this new album.

I'm not sure if I like it more than a handful of my favorite songs from Reveal and Accelerate, but it's good.

This is one of the best R.E.M. tracks since 1996. Only "Living Well Is The Best Revenge", "Supernatural Superserious", "The Lifting", "Outsiders", and "Aftermath" are similar in quality.

I'm just listening to it now, and I think those are the exact same thoughts that I have at the moment. This bodes well for what's coming.
And I'm not that familiar with R.E.M. to begin with, but I've been wanting to deepen my R.E.M. experience and see them live next tour hopefully.

Here is the song for those who are having trouble getting the link from the website,

YouTube - REM - Discoverer - New Song! Free MP3 Link

Pretty great track, definitely added to my excitement for the new album!
The bridge / chorus change at 1:03 is a little typical and boring, but overall I like the track, Amazing how fresh the band still sound, Stipe sounds just like he did on Green and other albums around the mid to late 80's and Buck and Mills really have started to rock more uptempo songs again as seen on Accelerate,

Early days yet but R.E.M have never been a let down for me!
(Yup I even liked Around the Sun)

Finally got the download to work.

Not entirely sure what I think about it after just one listen. Didn't bowl me over. I like the mix of guitar tones, though. And Stipe sounds good.

I don't think I made out a single lyric that he sang, though. And I'm usually pretty good at deciphering lyrics.

Something about "With the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess..."

The energy of Accelerate, with more layers to the sound. Hopefully the full album will have strong lyrics. March can't come fast enough!!
