Pearl Jam to release new album 'Lightning Bolt' in October Pearl Jam Tickets

Band to release first album since 2009. Hear new song 'Mind Your Manners' now

Pearl Jam have announced details of a brand new studio album, 'Lightning Bolt', to be released in October.

The album will be the US band's tenth in total and their first since 2009's 'Backspacer'. The first track to be taken from the album, 'Mind Your Manners', can be heard above, now.

Speaking earlier this year, guitarist Mike McCready said the content of the album, which will again be produced by Brendan O'Brien, was inspired by Pink Floyd and punk rock, adding that the record is "experimental".

He said:

I would say as a cliché answer it's kind of a logical extension of what 'Backspacer' was. But I think there's a little bit more experimental stuff going on. There's a Pink Floyd vibe to some of it, there's a punk rock edge to other stuff.



Speaking at the time, McCready said that seven songs are "relatively completed" and there are an additional 15 "ready to go". "We're excited to get it done, because we've kind of been waiting for about two years to do it," he explained.

Scroll down to see a trailer for 'Lightning Bolt', which will be released on October 15.
