Pearl Jam have shared the track listing for their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton which is set to be released via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on 27 March.
Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam, Gigaton features 12 tracks including the first single, ‘Dance of the Clairvoyants’. It is the Seattle outfit’s first studio album since the Grammy award-winning Lightning Bolt, which was released on 15 October 2013.
“Making this record was a long journey,” explains guitarist Mike McCready. “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.”
Gigaton’s cover features Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen’s photo “Ice Waterfall.” Taken in Svalbard, Norway, this image features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.
In support of Gigaton, Pearl Jam will embark on their first leg of North American tour dates in March and April. The 16-date tour kicks-off on March 18 in Toronto and wraps with a two-date stint in Oakland on 18 and 19 April. The band have decided that tickets will be mobile only and strictly non-transferable, except in NY and CO where transferability is required by state law.

2020 officially marks 30 years of Pearl Jam performing live. Eleven studio albums, hundreds of unique live performances and official live concert bootleg releases later, the band continues to be critically acclaimed and commercially successful — with over 85 million albums sold worldwide and a 2017 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
