Rockers R.E.M. are set to make musical history at the end of March (08) when they become the first major act to launch an album on a social networking website. Fans will be able to stream and share the band's Accelerate album on iLike.com a week before it hits record stores on 1 April (08). Frontman Michael Stipe tells Billboard.com, "It was one of those ideas that was presented to us and it seemed like a good one."
In Deepwater Horizon, Mark Wahlberg reteams with his Lone Survivor director Peter Berg.
The live album is set for released in November.
The movie begins filming in the UK.
