Michael Stipe has released the demo version of a new song co-written with The National’s Aaron Dessner. It’s called ‘No Time For Love Like Now’.

In a post on Instagram, Dessner writes: “Michael Stipe has been a great hero and friend to me – and The National – and I never in my wildest dreams imagined writing songs together. But here is the demo of one in progress, coming to you from Michael in isolation at home – hope it raises some spirits. The lyrics and sentiment in the music feel tied to this time”.
