Rem Preview Album Online

American rock superstars REM are previewing their new album AROUND THE SUN on the internet.

Fans of the band can listen to tracks from the LP - there 13th studio album - now and for free, on networking portal MYSPACE.

MySpace boss CHRIS DEWOLFE says, "REM is one of those legendary bands that create an event like atmosphere on our site.

"This is a unique chance to get millions of people talking, simultaneously, about the new album.

"We expect many more deals like this in the future. It's a new way for indie and major labels to get their music out to the masses, and we believe it will work out well for the labels, MySpace and for music fans."

Those without internet access will have to wait until 4 October, when Around The Sun hits record store shelves.
