It comes after Little Mix were confirmed as the first BST headliners for 2020, joined by a line-up that also includes the likes of Kesha and Rita Ora.

At the beginning of the year, Pearl Jam explained how their new album has been affected by the death of Chris Cornell.

“It’d be fun to record or even just to write a song together,” he said. “I think when Chris passed – that’s really been a tough one to wrap our heads around – and then there’s just life stuff,” said bassist Jeff Ament.

It has been six years since Pearl Jam’s last studio album was released. ‘Lightning Bolt’ was released in October 2013 and was the band’s 10th record. They have released five live albums since that record.
