The three-minute, 50-second track dropped on Tuesday morning, following a week of teasing by the band, in which a quick snippet of the high-energy, upbeat rock anthem could be heard when fans pointed their cellphones to the moon through the band’s own digital app by using augmented-reality technology.
It’s the second of 12 brand new original tracks from the Josh Evans-produced record, including the yet-to-be-released songs Seven O’Clock, Retrograde and River Cross.
Gigaton, the long-awaited 11th studio album by Pearl Jam, is scheduled for a March 27 release worldwide.
On the album as a whole, longtime Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament said in a press release, “I can’t tell you how proud I am about this group of songs.”
“As you know,” he added, “we took our time and that benefited us taking more chances.”
