"Gigaton", which was co-produced by Pearl Jam and Josh Evans, will arrive seven years after the band's most recent and tenth studio effort, "Lightning Bolt".

In December, it was confirmed Pearl Jam - who formed in 1990 - will mark their 30th anniversary by headlining British Summer Time Hyde Park this summer. The track finds Eddie Vedder increasing the intensity in his vocal as the verse progresses. "Dance" was a ideal storm of experimentation and real collaboration, mixing up the instrumentation and building a great song, and Ed [Vedder] writing some of my favorite words yet, around Matt's [Cameron] killer drum pattern".

Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said of the Biden-Burisma scandal Thursday in the Senate ahead of day two of opening arguments in the impeachment trial against President Trump.

And now the beloved Seattle band's new single "Dance of the Clairvoyants" is finally out!

There are also welcome touches of mid-'00s dance rock, with guitar stabs that could be off Franz Ferdinand's debut (or perhaps from Vedder faves the Strokes) alongside what sounds like a mix of live and programmed drums and a striking bass line played by Gossard. We have opened new doors in creative ways and it's exciting.

Hear the new song below. Their North American tour begins March 18 in Toronto.
