“Until the Day Is Done”, the new song from R.E.M.
, will debut on Anderson Cooper 360°
on Wednesday, Oct. 10, in advance of their widely anticipated forthcoming album due for release next spring.
The song will be matched to clips from CNN’s "Planet in Peril," which features footage from areas around the world where environmental crises are not a theory but are happening in real time, and will play over the documentary’s closing credits.
Coinciding with its debut on Anderson Cooper 360°, the video trailer will be available at the "Planet in Peril" section of CNN.com. The four-hour documentary airs in two parts on Tuesday, Oct. 23, and Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. (ET/PT) and will air worldwide on CNN International in more than 200 countries and territories.
“With Planet in Peril, Anderson Cooper and his team have done an amazing job capturing global eco-devastation," said Michael Stipe
of R.E.M. “The images in the film are beautiful, while at the same time heart-breaking and frightening. We are honored to have our song included in this monumental project."
