R.E.M. is on the comeback trail, with 15th album Collapse Into Now released next week alongside short films for each track.

According to, the band’s top tracks over the last six months reflect a definitive bias toward their older material: “Losing My Religion” is now 20 years old, but it’s by far their most popular track with 3,374,299 scrobbles from 604,612 listeners. Newest track “Imitation of Life” hails from 2001’s Reveal, but the highest-charted track from R.E.M.’s last album, Accelerate, is “Supernatural Superserious,” which resides at the #32 spot.
