R.E.M. have just released the new video for their song “Mine Smell My Like Honey,” from the band’s fifteenth studio album, Collapse Into Now.

The video starts off with frontman Michael Stipe being carried up the stairs by several people. He flips around in slow motion and is left on his back at the top of the stairs. His body is staged in different awkward positions by these people until the end of the video, when he sits up normally in a chair, staring out at the camera.

This new track and another one called “Uberlin” are being released with the album on March 7.

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]U2[/lastfm] collaborator Jacknife Lee produced the new record, which is the follow-up to 2008’s Accelerate. Some of the guest artists featured on the album include Peaches, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Patti Smith[/lastfm] and Pearl Jam’s [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eddie Vedder[/lastfm].

The band says that there is a good chance they won’t tour to promote the album.
