It’s been over two decades since Pearl Jam dropped their iconic album Yield and they found the perfect way to celebrate its legacy. The Seattle rockers will mark the 25th anniversary of their fifth studio album by releasing a special anniversary edition.

Pearl Jam is joining forces with Vinyl Me Please to release what’s been described as “pressed on 180g translucent red & black hi-melt vinyl.” It will be the first release from the company’s new audiophile-grade pressing plant and their CEO Cameron Schaefer can’t wait to join forces with one of the greatest rock bands of his lifetime.

“To get to play even a small part in honoring their legacy through the reissue of their fifth album Yield is an absolute highlight of my career. I’m hopeful our attention to detail and passion for the band carries through to the product and delights superfans and newcomers alike,” said Schaefer in a statement.

Yield was originally released on February 3, 1998, and it marked the return to the band’s early straightforward rock sound. It produced the hit singles “Given to Fly”, “Do the Evolution”, and “Wishlist”, and it has been certified platinum by the RIAA after selling 1.9 million copies in the United States.
