PEARL JAM's twelfth studio album, "Dark Matter", will be released on April 19, 2024 via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records. The LP's title track can be streamed below.

"Dark Matter" was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Andrew Watt and is PEARL JAM's first release since 2020's "Gigaton".

In 2023, the members of PEARL JAMEddie Vedder (vocals),Jeff Ament (bass),Stone Gossard (rhythm guitar),Mike McCready (lead guitar) and Matt Cameron (drums) — retreated to Shangri-La Studios in Malibu where they simply plugged in and played under Watt's watch. Writing and recording in a burst of inspiration, "Dark Matter" was born in just three weeks. As a result, "Dark Matter" channels the shared spirit of a group of lifelong creative confidants and brothers in one room playing as if their very lives depended on it. All of the blood, sweat, tears, and energy of a storied career felt renewed and poured into this one body of work.

The PEARL JAM bandmembers personally previewed the record with a listening party at the iconic Troubadour in West Hollywood during Grammy week:

Vedder said: "I'm getting chills, because I have good memories. We're still looking for ways to communicate. We're at this time in our lives when you could do it or you could not do it, but we still care about putting something out there that is meaningful and we hopefully think is our best work. No hyperbole, I think this is our best work."

Ament added: "What Ed said about getting us in a room at this point, we felt like we were about to make a really important record. A lot of that had to do with the atmosphere Andrew set up. He has encyclopedic knowledge of our history, not only as a band and how we wrote songs, but as players. He could pinpoint things we did on old songs to the point where I was, like, 'What the fuck is he talking about?' His excitement was contagious. He's a force. I just want to say thanks for keeping us on track. I couldn't be prouder of us as a band. I feel so grateful for the fans, but mostly for my brothers and these people I've made music with."

The band is celebrating indie record stores with the release of a special edition of "Dark Matter" on April 20. Only at participating stores as part of Record Store Day. Get more information and find stores at

"Dark Matter" album packaging features light painting art by Alexandr Gnezdilov. Light painting is an artistic form of photography where images are created by adjusting a camera's exposure for an extended period and using a light source, such as a flashlight, to "paint" in the dark. The album cover art was crafted using a large self-made kaleidoscope. Each letter visible on the cover was individually captured and handwritten midair with a specially designed flashlight to create the pearlescent effect.
