So remember this summer when it was reported that James Franco was collaborating with Lindsay Lohan on some vaguely described "video/art" project? Well, it looks like we now have the fruits of their labors, and it's certainly unexpected. Franco has directed a video for R.E.M.'s "Blue" that is from the now-defunct band's 2011 album Collapse Into Now. Why it's dropping now we have no idea. But the result is perfectly Franco-esque, featuring a lot of woozy shots of Los Angeles, Franco in a helicopter, Terry Richardson shooting Lohan and some other stuff. What it all means, we have no idea or why Franco chose such a turgid song is equally baffling. Though perhaps Michael Stipe and guest vocalist Patti Smith's musings are supposed to add some depth and weight to this. Anyway, you can click below and check it out. [Stereogum] »
