Pearl Jam has released “Running,” the latest song from their upcoming album Dark Matter.

With a flurry of guitars, propulsive drumming and frenzied vocals from frontman Eddie Vedder, “Running” is one of the most punk-leaning songs in Pearl Jam’s arsenal. In the lyrics, Vedder rails against a "Dictator, love hater" who has him "running 'till the second coming." The tune's chorus brings echoes that anxiety, as Vedder sings: "Lost in the tunnel and the tunnel's getting funneled / Like the sewage in the plumbing / 'Cause we left the fucking water running."

Later, the tune momentarily breaks down in the bridge before ratcheting the energy up once more to close. Listen to “Running” below.

In a recent conversation with Spin, Stone Gossard explained how “Running” came together.

“Jeff (Ament) had the main parts for that one, and we worked it over as a band,” the guitarist explained. “I love the bridge. I don’t know what the hell those chords are that Mike’s playing, but it sounds original. It’s one of the last ones we recorded at Shangri-La, and it was fun to come up with one more uptempo song. Ed’s vocal dexterity here and on a few other spots on the album is just stunning.”
