REM front man Michael Stipe has fuelled speculation that the band will release a new album in 2008 with a cryptic message to fans.

Stipe was attending a lunchbox auction for charity in New York when he revealed that the band had been in the studio recording new material.

He said: "Let me tell you a secret: we have a great fucking record in the bag. It's a big change. It's coming out on April Fool's Day."

April Fool’s Day 2008 is in fact a Tuesday, the usual day for album releases in the US.

REM’s last studio album was 2004’s ‘Around The Sun’.
