Nightswimming” from R.E.M.’s best-selling 1992 album, Automatic for the People. Nightswimming is the best track on this great REM release. The track conjures up a shared universal memory most of us experience in childhood and then perhaps revisit as less inhibited adults. In my experience, running naked into a pool at night is much easier as an innocent adolescent. We swam in a gorge pool most weekend summer nights, a mixed-gender group of neighborhood misfits. Nightswimming has earned a solo spot on Durham Cool as it conjures up so many great childhood nascent memories.
R.E.M. is excited to announce the reissue of their landmark album Automatic For The People to commemorate the record’s 25th Anniversary. Due November 10 via Craft Recordings, the remastered album will be available in various formats, the most extensive of which is the Deluxe Anniversary Edition, which will feature the album mixed in Dolby Atmos.
The album (plus bonus track “Photograph,” featuring Natalie Merchant) was remixed in Dolby Atmos by Automatic’s original producer, Scott Litt, and engineer, Clif Norrell. This technology delivers a leap forward from surround sound with expansive, flowing audio that immerses the listener beyond what stereo can offer. It transports the listener inside the recording studio with multi-dimensional audio – evoking a time when listening to music was an active, transformative experience and reigniting the emotion you felt when you first heard the album in 1992. R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People is the first album to be commercially released in this expressive, breathtaking format.
In addition, the 4-disc Deluxe Edition will offer a wealth of previously unreleased material. The band selected 20 never-before-heard demos from the LP’s sessions, including the fully-realized, unreleased track “Mike’s Pop Song” and the oft-mused song “Devil Rides Backwards.”
