Pearl Jam Tease New Song “Obey The Law Of The Heart”

Pearl Jam are contributing a new song to the ‘Basmati Blues’ soundtrack titled “Obey The Law Of The Heart.” PearlJamOnline are reporting that the song was written by Stone Gossard, and performed by Pearl Jam and Sain Zahoor with Priya Darshini. It was produced by Stone Gossard, Steven Argila, and Wayne Sharpe.

This is Pearl Jam’s first new song since 2013’s Lightning Bolt. ‘Basmati Blues’ is an upcoming independent musical romantic comedy film directed by Dan Baron, which is his directorial debut. The film stars Academy Award winner Brie Larson, Scott Bakula, and Donald Sutherland.

Pearl Jam posted a clapping emoji in response to a Washington Post story about Danica Roem becoming one of the first openly transgender elected officials in the United States. Below is an excerpt from the story:

Virginia’s most socially conservative state lawmaker was ousted from office Tuesday by Danica Roem, a Democrat who will be one of the nation’s first openly transgender elected officials and who embodies much of what Del. Robert G. Marshall fought against in Richmond.

The race focused on traffic and other local issues in suburban Prince William County but also exposed the nation’s fault lines over gender identity. It pitted a 33-year-old former journalist who began her physical gender transition four years ago against a 13-term incumbent who called himself Virginia’s “chief homophobe” and earlier this year introduced a “bathroom bill” that died in committee.

“Discrimination is a disqualifier,” a jubilant Roem said Tuesday night as her margin of victory became clear. “This is about the people of the 13th District disregarding fear tactics, disregarding phobias . . . where we celebrate you because of who you are, not despite it.”

Marshall, 73, who refused to debate Roem and referred to her with male pronouns, declined an interview request but posted a concession message on Facebook.

“For 26 years I’ve been proud to fight for you, and fight for our future,” he said. “I’m committed to continue the fight for you, but in a different role going forward.”

    Thoughts Corndog?

      Is that the song playing in the background of that trailer above? My first thought is the distinct lack of your uncle Eddie. Can’t really hear much in the video but it seems to have a sort of poppy feel. Honestly, I’m a little disappointed. When I read the title I thought it was going to be a proper Pearl Jam song; perhaps a sign that they might be working on a new album after all. Not overly interested in Pearl Jam without Eddie singing.

        Maybe it’ll be like Ole, and just some throw away track for fun. Not indicative of a new sound/direction.

        • Corndog

          I don’t mind Olé. It wasn’t a great song, but it was ok, and it was free! Also had the advantage of actually having Eddie singing on it:)

    Pearl Jam supports transsexual weirdos who are mentally ill by definition….sick

    • TID

      Then maybe you shouldn’t support Pearl Jam.

        they were my favorite band for a long time….then I grew up….

        • TID

          Ok, so then what are you doing here?

            making a comment – you?

        • Corndog

          What does growing up have to do with you no longer liking Pearl Jam? I’m afraid I don’t get the correlation there.

            I do still like their music….Eddie is still a fantastic singer and songwriter…but I don’t idolize them as I did in the early 90’s when I was young…it’s mostly the politics that have turned me off now…..& Matt Cameron just plays too fast live…again these are my opinions….Jack Irons is/was my favorite PJ drummer…..

          • Corndog

            I tend to ignore the opinions on politics etc that the members of bands I listen to have. They’re people just like the rest of us and are therefore entitled to those opinions but my interest lies in their output, not them as individuals.

            Cameron does indeed play too fast live but personally my favorite PJ drummer is Dave A.

      The person she ran against and defeated is such a gem. Talk about a weirdo, look no further than Bob Marshall

        it is a he…fixed that for ya

  • Stone Gossardish

    If that’s the song, they’re using the world “Pearl Jam” rather loosely, and we may have more to worry about than we previously thought.

      Matt F*cking Cameron 🙂
