The first taste of new Pearl Jam music has finally arrived. The band has shared the first single from their upcoming album Gigaton, “Dance of the Clairvoyants.”
This marks Pearl Jam’s first new song since the 2018 release of the politically charged “Can’t Deny Me,” which we know will not be included on Gigaton since the track listing was revealed yesterday (Jan. 20). That being said, it’s their first album single since Lightning Bolt came out in 2013, which makes the anticipation for the upcoming record that much more real.
The song has a more electronic feel overall, showing some musical evolution. The track also finds Eddie Vedder increasing the intensity in his vocal as the verse progresses. Bassist Jeff Ament says of the track, “‘Dance’ was a perfect storm of experimentation and real collaboration, mixing up the instrumentation and building a great song, and Ed writing some of my favorite words yet, around Matt’s killer drum pattern. Did I mention Mike’s insane guitar part and that Stone is playing bass on this one? We’ve opened some new doors creatively and that’s exciting.”
