Angel Olsen has teamed up with Pearl Jam‘s Jeff Ament on the first offering from the bassist’s solo venture. Check out ‘Safe in the Car’ below.

Ament recently announced his debut album ‘Heaven/Hell’ via Pearl Jam’s official site, though there’s no official release date as of yet.

Olsen provides backing vocals on the swaggering, distorted track – which also features Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Matt Cameron on guitar and drums respectively.

The official announcement asks fans to “stay tuned” for further news on ‘Heaven/Hell’.

Meanwhile, after dropping their first new song in five years with ‘Can’t Deny Me‘, Pearl Jam have confirmed that a new album is on the horizon in the wake of announcing world tour dates for summer 2018.

The band are scheduled to play two nights at London’s O2 in June, followed by appearances at Madrid’s Mad Cool and NOS Alive festivals.

Angel Olsen’s previous release came in the form of ‘Phases’ – a collection of unreleased material, B-sides and rarities from across her career. NME described it as “a deeply autumnal album, perfect for listening to while strolling down dimly lit side streets with crisp leaves underfoot.”
