Just about two months before the release of their new album, Gigaton, Pearl Jam released the first single from the album – “Dance of the Clairvoyants.” The new album will be the band’s first studio album in 7 years since 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
Bassist Jeff Ament wrote about the new songs on the band’s Twitter account. “‘Dance’ was a perfect storm of experimentation and real collaboration… We’ve opened some new doors creatively and that’s exciting.”
“Making this record was a long journey,” guitarist Mike McCready said in a statement about Gigaton. “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.”
Just before the new album’s release, on March 18th, the band will embark on a 16-date North American tour. The first show will be in Toronto and the tour will end on April 19th in Oakland, California. Then the band will cross the ocean for the European leg of the tour, beginning June 23rd in Frankfurt Germany.
