Pearl Jam has released the latest single set to appear on the rock band’s forthcoming Gigaton studio album, scheduled to arrive this Friday, March 27th. Entitled, “Quick Escape”, the new song shared on Wednesday follows previously-released singles from the Gigaton tracklisting including “Dance of the Clairvoyants” and “Superblood Wolfmoon”, in addition to “River Cross” which debuted during a commercial which aired during this year’s Super Bowl.
The raw-sounding track powers its way through an erratic intro to open into a full-blown rock performance. The song’s visual accompaniment adds to the listening experience as it provides viewers with a series of well-edited scenes pulled from Mother Nature.

The band was supposed to head out on a run of spring tour dates beginning this month, but that tour was one of the first major concert runs to be postponed due to COVID-19.
Pearl Jam had also planned to host an official listening event for Gigaton in over 200 movie theaters in North America, the U.K., Europe, and Australia, but those plans have also since been scrapped. Fans still have the chance, however, to dial into the Gigaton phone hotline to hear some of the unreleased material set to appear on the album when it arrives this Friday by calling 585-20-PEARL (585-207-3275).
