Michael Stipe Co-Writes, Co-Produces New Fischerspooner LP

Gradually easing back into the music realm, Michael Stipe co-wrote and co-produced the forthcoming album by New York City-based electro-pop duo Fischerspooner. Their first album in eight years, SIR is due for release September 22nd on Ultra Records.

Aside from a few brief onstage appearances, Stipe has largely focused on visual art since R.E.M.’s dissolution in 2011, and he has a book of his photographs due out later this year. He also composed an original piece of music as part of a multimedia installation he made, featuring late Athens artist Jeremy Ayers, for Moogfest in Durham, North Carolina in May.
