Pearl Jam fans have been waiting for a new release date, and we finally have one: for a Seattle Space Needle time capsule. The band have written secret messages that will be released on April 21, 2062.
PearlJamOnline wrote, “We will have to wait 43 years to know the content of it, but we already know that all Pearl Jam members wrote some messages that have been included in the Space Needle time capsule that will be open on April 21st 2062.
Also in the capsule will be included forecasts about future Super Bowls written by Walter Jones from Seattle Seahawks, a book form the American Postal Service and several items from Amazon.com.”
Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready offered the most positive update yet on the band’s new album in March in a new ESPN Seattle interview. McCready said he hopes fans will get to hear new Pearl Jam in 2019. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.
“We did a huge tour last year like we were talking about, so we’re all still recovering from that. We’re writing songs for another record. We did our last record about 5 years ago. Hopefully we’re going to get that thing done soon. It’s been a bit, it’s been a little while.”
He added, “It’s the longest I think we’ve had between records. We’ve got a bunch of songs ready to go, and I think we’re going to get something cool this year. Hopefully it will be out, I don’t have a date on anything yet though.”
Pearl Jam last released Lightning Bolt in 2013, and if they release a new record this year, it will have been 6 years between albums. The band released “Can’t Deny Me” in March 2018, which they claimed was a song off of their ‘forthcoming’ new album. 2018 came and went, and despite a North American, South American, and European tour, no new record was released.
Last month, all five members of Pearl Jam were finally reportedly in the studio together. A signed photo auction by Danny Clinch claimed the band collectively signed a photo for him in the studio just two weeks ago.
Pearl Jam Online reports, “Photographer and director Danny Clinch shared a link on Twitter about a charity auction for one of his 2013 Pearl Jam pictures that will be sold in favor of the Kristen Ann Carr Fund. The caption of the soon after deleted tweet was: “A Danny Clinch picture of Pearl Jam, signed two weeks ago by the band members in their recording studio in Seattle”.
