It’s been seven years since rock fans have gotten a new album from Pearl Jam. But on Friday (March 27), the band released their eleventh studio album, Gigaton.
Produced by Josh Evans and the band, the new effort follows 2013’s Lightning Bolt, which took home a Grammy for best recording package. “Making this record was a long journey,” explains Mike McCready of Gigaton in a press release. “It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”
The 12-track set features previously released singles “Dance of the Clairvoyants,” “Superblood Wolfmoon” and “Quick Escape.”Listen to Gigaton in full below.
