Stream Pearl Jam's New Album Lightning Bolt
Pearl Jam is now stream their 10th album Lightning Bolt over at iTunes. The album is their first since 2009’s Backspacer and so far it’s gotten some very non-Pearl Jam treatment leading up to its release: The typically camera-shy group released a short film alongside Judd Apatow depicting their recent trip around Seattle, and the band even put out music videos for “Sirens” and “Mind Your Manners.” Pearl Jam has been notoriously disinterested in making music videos and actually hasn’t made a proper one featuring members of the band since 1991’s “Jeremy.” Frontman Eddie Vedder acknowledged that the four-year gap between records may have contributed to the band’s desire to promote it heavily.
“When you take longer between records, there’s more importance placed on the records,” Vedder recently told Rolling Stone. “Maybe the next thing you do is put out another one in the next year—just put it out, and not have a buildup.”
Lightning Bolt can be streamed in its entirety over at iTunes, where it is also available for preorder. Their 10th studio album is set for an Oct. 15 release date via Monkeywrench/Republic.
