R.E.M's Peter Buck has posted his first solo material online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to hear his track '10 Million BC'.

The song, which surfaced via Slicing Up Eyeballs, is set to appear on the guitarist's debut album, although a title or release date for the LP have yet to be revealed. In March of this year, Scott McCaughey – Buck's Minus 5 band mate and frequent REM collaborator – confirmed that he had been working on the record and hinted that it would be released on vinyl only.

It is likely that the LP will be the first album made by any of the members of REM since they split up in September last year, following the release of their 15th studio album 'Collapse Into Now'. Last November, frontman Michael Stipe said it was "unfathomable" that he would make a solo LP, with reports suggesting that the singer is more interested in pursuing his artistic interests such as sculpture and photography. The band's bassist Martin Mills, meanwhile, has given no indication that he will record or release material by himself.

All three members of the seminal alternative rock band, meanwhile, have repeatedly quashed any speculation that they will reunite in the future, with Mills describing the timing of their split as "perfect" and Stipe insisting that they will not play together again.
