The complex field zeros of the Random Energy Model are analytically determined. For $T<T_{\rm c}$ they are distributed in the whole complex plane with a density that decays very fast with the real component of H. For $T>T_{\rm c}$ a region is found which is free of zeros and is associated to the paramagnetic phase of the system. This region is separated from the former by a line of zeros. The real axis is found to be enclosed in a cloud of zeros in the whole frozen phase of the system.
