Producer Scott Litt and R.E.M. are heading to Seattle to
continue work on the group's next album, according to one of our sources. The
group wrote material for the album throughout their 1995 world tour, and
already logged some studio time. "We spent a couple of weeks in Georgia doing
stuff," producer Scott Litt told us. "It's coming along great. It's going to be
a really great record. We're going to be working on it all next month and some
of April as well." Litt couldn't tell us if the plan was to get the album out
by summer, but we won't be surprised if that's what happens.
