R.E.M. are in the process of assembling a 25th anniversary edition of their 1988 album, Green.

Green was the group's first album for Warner Brothers and represented a change in direction for the group to a more acoustic sound. The album produced the group's second top ten hit, Stand, along with three additional singles, Orange Crush, Pop Song 89 and Get Up.

The 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be released by Rhino on May 14 as a double CD, 180-gram vinyl LP and via digital download. Disc one of the set is the remastered version of the original album while disc two is a November 10, 1989 concert from Greensboro, NC that includes the majority of the Green album, earlier favorites and two songs from their followup, Out of Time.

Rhino will also release a limited-edition, five-track EP from the live album on Record Store Day, April 20.
