It’s not due for release until Tuesday, but the brand-new R.E.M. single “We All Go Back To Where We Belong” — one of three new tracks on the band’s posthumous best-of — hit the web Sunday night, and you can take an early listen to it below. The gentle, string-laden ballad will appear on the 40-song Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011, which arrives in stores on Nov. 15. And unless the band releases one of the two other new songs — “A Month of Saturdays” and “”Hallelujah” — this will be R.E.M.’s final single.

Subtle, gentle and beautiful. I like it.
Guh. This makes me sad that we’ll never get anymore of this.
thank you R.E.M. and S.U.E.
I can’t listen to it…oh wait! It was because you STOLE it and Warners caught you. What a jerk you are.
