R.E.M.: We All Go Back To Where We Belong

R.E.M. released two videos this week for its new single, “We All Go Back To Where We Belong,” which seems a very fitting title considering that they recently announced  their break-up.

One video (above) features the stunning actress Kirsten Dunst, while the other stars artist and poet John Giorno. Watching the videos, I’m reminded of Andy Warhol’s screen tests. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were an inspiration.

Here is Warhol’s screen test for Edie Sedgwick for comparison:
