Pearl Jam's excellent 'Lightning Bolt' now streaming on iTunes a week early

Posted on

It has struck: Lightning Bolt, Pearl Jam’s excellent 10th album, is now streaming on iTunes, eight days before its Oct. 15 release.

You may have already heard the album’s first two singles, “Mind Your Manners” and the very pretty “Sirens.” But you haven’t heard “Infallible,” which I think is the best song. Read my thoughts on that and the rest of this “muscular and tender” album here.

Pearl Jam haven’t merely enlisted iTunes elves to promote Lightning Bolt. They also got a few of their famous friends—like Carrie Brownstein—to interview them. If we were Pearl Jam, we’d probably do the same thing.
