Pearl Jam to Release New Single, ‘Mind Your Manners,’ in July?
Seattle grunge titans Pearl Jam have been working on their tenth studio album — the follow-up to 2009's 'Backspacer' — and according to an All Access listing (which has since been taken down), fans can expect to hear their new single, 'Mind Your Manners,' on July 16.
Back in February, guitarist Mike McCready told Rolling Stone that they plan on releasing their forthcoming record “this year, for sure.” He called the disc “kind of a logical extension of what 'Backspacer' was.”
"But I think there's a little bit more experimental stuff going on,” added McCready. “There's a Pink Floyd vibe to some of it, there's a punk rock edge to other stuff." Fun fact: PJ teamed up with Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger’s violinist girlfriend, Ann Marie Simpson, to record a track on the new album.
In other news, Pearl Jam are gearing up to play a couple of sold-out North American shows this summer, followed by a headlining set at the New Orleans Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in the fall. Check out their official site for more info.
