Pearl Jam have announced that their eleventh studio album, Gigaton, will be released by Universal on March 27.

The album was produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam. The cover features an image by photographer and marine biologist Paul Nicklen, showing Norway’s Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater. Check it out below:


“Making this record was a long journey,” explains Pearl Jam’s 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.”

The first single, “Dance Of The Clairvoyants”, will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, peruse Pearl Jam’s 2020 tourdates, including the previously announced show in London’s Hyde Park, below:
