Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder has announced that he’ll be releasing a new single – but there’s a slight catch if you’re hoping to get your ears around it.
The new 7″ inch single will be released by Jack White’s Third Man Records this Friday, exclusively with tickets to the Chicago Cubs game on Friday, July 6.
The A-side of the limited edition blue-and-red colored vinyl features a recording of ‘All the Way’, Vedder’s 2007 song which expresses his love of the Cubs.
The B-side, meanwhile, includes a 1984 performance of ‘Go, Cubs, Go’. It isn’t clear if the vinyl will later receive a wider release.
But despite the release, it seems that a new Pearl Jam album is still some way off.
Last month, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament admitted that a Pearl Jam record probably won’t be released until 2019.
Despite releasing new track ‘Can’t Deny Me’ in March, which will serve as the lead single on the group’s 11th album, the Seattle rockers haven’t had a chance to spend any solid time in the studio yet.
He said the band need, “a good solid six to eight weeks carved out where we’re just recording all these ideas that we have.”
Ament went on to add, “The one thing we have working against us is the upcoming tour, the other thing we have working against us is it takes three or four months to do a vinyl version of any record,” before stating that “2019 is probably safe to say” when it comes to any timeframe for the new record’s release.
