Pearl Jam have released the full-length version of "Quick Escape," the third song from their upcoming Gigaton album.

You can see the official video and the complete lyrics for the song below.


Prior to releasing "Quick Escape," Pearl Jam offered full-length videos for the tracks "Dance of the Clairvoyants" and "Superblood Wolfmoon." The group has also shared short preview clips of Gigaton's remaining tracks, available both on Twitter and by calling an old-school telephone hotline.

Gigaton is set for release this Friday, March 27. You can read our review of the album, and see what other music critics have said about the band's 11th studio effort here.

The band was supposed to be in the midst of a North American tour promoting the album right now, but like every other music, sports or cultural event those shows have been postponed due to concerns over mass gatherings amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

"Quick Escape"

Reconnaissance on the corner
In the old world not so far
First we took and aeroplane
Then a boat to Zanzibar

Queen cranking on the blaster
And Mercury did rise
Come along where we all belonged
You were yours and I was mine

Had to... Quick escape
Had to... Quick escape

Crossed the border to Morocco
Kashmir than Marrakech
The lengths we had to go to then
To find a place Trump hadn't fucked up yet

Living life on the back porch
Lifting rocks to make a wage
Every sunset paid attention to
Not a starry night went to waste

Had to... Quick escape
Had to... Quick escape

And here we are, the red planet
Craters across the skyline
A sleep sack in a bivouac
And a Kerouac sense of time

And we think about the old days
Of green grass, sky and red wine
Should've known, so fragile
And avoided this one-way flight
