"Near Wild Heaven" is the third single released from R.E.M.'s seventh studio album Out of Time in 1991. The song was the first single released by the band to have had its lyrics both co-written and sung by bassist Mike Mills. According to a quotation from Peter Buck in R.E.M. Inside Out: The Stories Behind Every Song by Craig Rosen, the lyrics are a collaboration between Mills and lead singer Michael Stipe. It peaked at No. 27 on the UK Singles Chart but the single was not released in the United States. This is the third in the series of Limited Edition CDs to be released alongside singles from the LP 'Out Of Time'. Each one will include 3 LIVE Songs, all complimentary to those available on the other formats. Collectively they will form a unique record of R.E.M. In Concert.
