Grunge legends Pearl Jam will have a new single out on 16th July called Mind Your Manners, the first new material from the Seattleites since 2009’s ninth studio album Backspacer, according to a leaked listing which cropped up online.
All Access listed the song as an upcoming release. It has since been removed but seems pretty likely, considering Eddie Vedder and friends have been working on a new album for some time now. Guitarist Mike McCready earlier this year said that album number 10 would definitely be a 2013 release, with a handful of songs already relatively complete. He promised a diverse sound for the record, saying, “There’s a Pink Floyd vibe to some of it, there’s a punk rock edge to other stuff.”
Guess we’ll have to wait until 16th July to find out if Mind Your Manners is the real deal. In the meantime, can we suggest entertaining yourself with the band’s collaboration with Jay-Z on 99 Problems? You’re welcome.
