R.E.M.’s “Strange Currencies” features prominently in the second season of The Bear. This new video places footage from the Chicago based FX show along with video from R.E.M.’s 1996 concert film “Road Movie”
“Strange Currencies” originally appeared on R.E.M.’s 1994 album Monster, but the updated remix from The Bear was released on the Strange Currencies EP last week. It appeared alongside a remastered recording of the single and a live version of the recording created in 1995 and on 1996’s Road Movie. The original mix from 1994 appears in The Bear as well as a never-before-heard demo of the record.
