The Countdown Begins!


It's Official! There are only 62 days until the new Pearl Jam album, Pearl Jam [artwork above], hits stores AND my CD player for about a solid two months. The new album is their 8th studio album and first since 2003's Riot Act. The full track listing is not yet known, but the new single "Worldwide Suicide" will be released next week. Radio stations (and myself) have already recieved a digital :15 preview of the track. The song seems to be consistant with what the band has been saying about the album during the recording sessions; it sounds pretty darn rockin' and a bit of a throwback to Vs.-era material. But, of course, this is all based on fifteen seconds of the chorus that (according to many reports) may only be the left channel of the mix. [if you'd like to here for yourself, you can download the :15 .mp3 here]
PearlJam.com has also been redesigned and has announced that next Wed., March 8th, you'll be able to download "Worldwide Suicide" for free.
So, from now until May 2nd, everytime i update my blog here you'll get updated on how many days are left until the release!
Those of you who know me well enough know that i am absolutely, uncontrollably salivating
and licking my chops over every little bit of info i get about this album! Expect to hear about it if you hear from me.
