Watch Pearl Jam Perform New Songs "Lightning Bolt," "Future Days"

After recently confirming the arrival of their upcoming album, Lightning Bolt, Pearl Jam performed two fresh tracks from their impending release.

Consequence of Sound reports that the band’s Friday night concert at Chicago’s Wrigley Field was deterred for a substantial nearly-three hours by heavy downpours, but despite the weather, the show went on and the Seattle rock outfit made up for it by playing two never-heard tracks.

Pearl Jam first delved into the album’s title track, which isn’t as in-your-face as the band’s first single “”Mind Your Manners, but there is still a high amount of power and energy behind the tune.

“Future Days” was the second new song from the band. A soft Eddie Vedder solo piece that featured producer Brendan O’Brien on the keyboard, the track is a “hopeful anti-apocalyptic ballad” that’s worlds apart from the previous two releases. Listen to both songs below.

Pearl Jam’s next album is due out Oct. 15, and the band will also embark on a fall tour starting that same month. Check out dates here.
