R.E.M. have just posted the above new film on YouTube for their song "Every Day Is Yours To Win" as part of R.E.M.’s ongoing Collapse Into Now film project (in conjunction with the band's album of the same name, released last month by Warner Brothers) in which they stream a piece for just 24 hours. The Collapse Into Now album-inspired film project is a selection of short films set to the music from the new LP and each film was directed by notable artists and filmmakers, all curated & overseen by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe. The list of directors includes renaissance man James Franco; filmmaker, photographer, and conceptual artist Sam Taylor-Wood; and documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles. The "Every Day Is Yours To Win" short above was directed by Jim McKay, Chris Moukarbel, and Valerie Veatch. For further info on this R.E.M. project visit REMhq.com.
