Ahead of the upcoming 25th-anniversary reissue of their iconic album Monster, R.E.M. has launched an interactive web experience that enables fans to act as audio professionals and 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 November 1 – when Monster 25 is set to be released – all songs on the album will be available to play in their entirety.
The web experience allows fans to 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.
