Sounds | Pearl Jam - Dark Matter

Na hun laatste plaat Gigaton uit 2020, is Pearl Jam eindelijk terug met een nieuwe single, die eveneens ook de titeltrack is van de nieuwe plaat die uitkomt op 19april.

Dark Matter klinkt veelbelovend, harder dan verwacht, met een stevige nineties grunge vibe en volgens de band is het album hun beste werk tot nu toe! Nu nog enkele tourdata onze richting en het uitkijken kan helemaal beginnen!


In 2023, the members of Pearl Jam retreated to Shangri-La Studios in Malibu where they simply plugged in and played with producer Andrew Watt at the helm. The musicians faced one another in the same space and communicated sonically at the highest level. Writing and recording in a burst of inspiration, Dark Matter was born in just three weeks.

As a result, Dark Matter channels the shared spirit of a group of lifelong creative confidants and brothers in one room playing as if their very lives depended on it. All of the blood, sweat, tears, and energy of a storied career felt renewed and poured into this one body of work.

The band members personally previewed the record with a listening party at the iconic Troubadour in West Hollywood during GRAMMY® week. Vedder said:

“I’m getting chills, because I have good memories. We’re still looking for ways to communicate. We’re at this time in our lives when you could do it or you could not do it, but we still care about putting something out there that is meaningful and we hopefully think is our best work. No hyperbole, I think this is our best work."
