Pearl Jam Shares a New Single “Running” – New Album “Dark Matter” Coming Soon


Pearl Jam’s twelfth studio album, Dark Matter, will be released on April 19th, 2024 via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records. The LP’s second single “Running” can be streamed below. “Dark Matter” was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne) and is Pearl Jam’s first release since 2020’s Gigaton.

The album’s packaging features light painting art by Alexandr Gnezdilov. The album cover art was crafted using a large self-made kaleidoscope. Each letter visible on the cover was individually captured and handwritten midair with a specially designed flashlight to create the pearlescent effect.

Pearl Jam is celebrating indie record stores with the release of a special edition of “Dark Matter” on April 20, only at participating stores as part of Record Store Day. Get more information and find stores at https://www.recordstoreday.com.
