Stream: R.E.M., ‘We All Go Back To Where We Belong’ — new single off 2CD best-of

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.

UPDATE: The stream below has been removed, but you can listen to it via
