R.E.M. has shared previously unreleased song "Fascinating" to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Dorian that devastated the Bahamas last week.

The song, recorded in 2004 at Nassau's Compass Point Studios, is now available for download for the first time via http://remhq.bandcamp.com.

The single can be streamed for free on Bandcamp and downloaded for a minimum donation of $2. Proceeds will go directly to global organization Mercy Corps' emergency response and recovery efforts in the Bahamas.

"Fascinating" first appeared on the original master of 2001's Reveal before being cut last minute and has been described as frontman Michael Stipe's favorite song from the Reveal sessions.

"We're grateful to have R.E.M. in our global community of humanitarians, sharing their song with the world to help the people of the Bahamas recover and build back even stronger," said Neal Keny-Guyer, CEO of Mercy Corps.
