This may not be the first time Michael Stipe has released music post-R.E.M, but it’s the first time we’re getting an official solo single from him.
“Your Capricious Soul” is a masterful return from one of music’s most endearing voices, representing a moment in time that Stipe clearly feels passionate about as the long time environmental advocate praises the new generation.
Through throbbing licks and an understated electronic beat, Stipe’s gentle, contemplative vocals flow freely as he sings of life, death and nature.
The song is available as a digital download exclusively on michaelstipe.com. Proceeds are going to Extinction Rebellion “to help aid their work of non-violent protest of government inaction to the climate emergency”.
