R.E.M have just released an interactive web player allowing fans to compare and contrast the 2019 remixes of tracks from Monster with the remastered originals…
Ahead of the upcoming 25th anniversary reissue of their iconic album Monster, R.E.M. have launched an interactive web experience which allows fans to A/B the 2019 remixed album against the remastered 1994 original by toggling between the two.
Through the web application, fans can stream the advance singles Let Me In and What’s the Frequency, Kenneth? (logging in through their preferred streaming platform) and sample 30 seconds of each of the remaining album tracks. Starting on Monster 25 street date, 1 November, all songs on the album will be available to play in their entirety.
The web experience provides fans with an immersive and interactive dive into the sonic realm of the album, allowing them to easily explore the differences between the timeless originals and the brand-new mixes by Monster’s original producer, Scott Litt. The experience is visualized by the iconic bear head artwork, which shifts between the 1994 orange cover and the new distorted blue mode, depending on which version of the song the user is playing at that moment.
