Pearl Jam are set to release a book and soundtrack album to accompany their forthcoming Cameron Crowe-directed documentary Pearl Jam Twenty.
The film, due out in September, marks the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam‘s formation – watch a preview of it by clicking below. A newly-announced soundtrack collection from the movie will have a tracklisting chosen by Crowe.
A Pearl Jam Twenty book is also set to be released. With a foreword written by Crowe and contents compiled and written by authors Jonathan Cohen and Mark Wilkerson, the book is being biled as an “aesthetically stunning, definitive chronicle of the band’s past two decades”. It will be published through Simon & Schuster.
Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament previously told Rolling Stone that “the whole movie is Cameron’s love letter to us – but it’s equal parts complimentary and really painful. It shows our growing pains and some real bad times. It was just really hard to watch.”
