So far, the Seattle group has given us snippets of “Never Destination,” “Who Ever Said,” “Seven O’Clock,” “Alright,” “Who Ever Said,” Quick Escape" and "Buckle Up," after previously releasing two singles, “Dance of the Clairvoyants” and “Superblood Wolfmoon” complete with music videos.
Today, the group also announced a special phone number, (585) 20-PEARL, where fans can call in to hear advance snippets of every song from the album.

Gigaton, Pearl Jam’s first album since 2013’s Lightning Bolt, is the band’s 11th studio effort. It was co-produced by Josh Evans and the band. The spring Gigaton tour was postponed and the listening events have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but a summer European tour and two September festival dates are still slated for the time being.
