Press Release:

7A Records are proud to announce the release of Micky Dolenz Sings R. E. M. , a 4 track EP. The EP is comprised of songs R. E. M. wrote throughout their career, all beautifully reimagined by Dolenz and producer Christian Nesmith. The EP features fresh and completely new arrangements of some of R. E. M. 's most memorable and catchy songs. As Dolenz says: "Once again, this EP reaffirms my long-held conviction that a solid recording always begins with solid material. You don't get much solid than R. E. M. What a joy to, once again, bring these songs to life". R. E. M.

Reactions to the EP: "These songs are ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. Micky Dolenz covering R. E. M. Monkees style, I have died and gone to heaven. This is really something. Shiny Happy People sounds INCREDIBLE (never thought you or I would hear me say that!!!). Give it a spin. It's wild. And produced by Christian Nesmith (son of Michael Nesmith), I am finally complete". Michael Stipe "That voice-one of the main voices of my musical awakening-singing our songs... It is beyond awesome. Let's help make this as huge as we possibly can. I am beyond thrilled. " Mike Mills. "I've been listening to Micky's singing since I was nine years old. It's unreal to hear that very voice, adding new depth to songs we've written ourselves, and inhabiting them so completely. " Peter Buck "I am blown away! Micky and Christian just take these tracks to unexpected places".
