Pearl Jam has shared their first new music since 2018 and it comes in the form of a new single, “Dance Of The Clairvoyants”. This single is the first release from their forthcoming 11th studio album, Gigaton.
Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament described his excitement in a statement following the single’s release, saying, “I can’t tell you how proud I am about this group of songs. ‘Dance’ was a perfect storm of experimentation and real collaboration, mixing up the instrumentation and building a great song, and Ed [Vedder] writing some of my favorite words yet, around Matt‘s [Cameron] killer drum pattern.”

The aforementioned Gigaton album is out on March 27th via Monkeywrench/Republic Records. The 12-song LP is a follow-up to their 2013 release Lightning Bolt. Guitarist Mike McCready described the journey of making the record in a statement saying, “It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption.”
McCready goes on to say that working on the album gave him “greater love, awareness, and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”
The band has recently announced a tour in support of Gigaton, which is available to pre-order now. Visit the band’s official website for pre-order and ticket information.
