"Animal" is a single released by R.E.M. It was one of two new songs recorded for the band's Warner Bros. Records "best of" album, In Time - The Best of R.E.M. 1988-2003, (the other being "Bad Day") and was released as a single in support of the album.
The video to Animal stars lead singer Michael Stipe and shows an artist's conception of the idea of a solar eclipse allowing energy of all forms, including emotions between people, to be seen as visual light. The music video was not included on In View - The Best of R.E.M. 1988-2003, the DVD supporting In Time, as it hadn't been filmed until after its release.
