Pearl Jam have announced their 12th studio album.

The follow-up to 2020's 'Gigaton' is titled 'Dark Matter' and will arrive on April 19 via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records. 

Produced by the Grammy Award-winning Andrew Watt, it was written and recorded in just three weeks at Rick Rubin's Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California. 

As a preview, the Seattle band have shared the record's guitar-heavy title track, which marks a return to their '90s grunge-rock sound. Press play below, next to the record's cover art, a light painting by Alexandr Gnezdilov. Vocalist Eddie 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."

Bassist Jeff 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."

Pearl Jam will headline BottleRock Festival in Napa Valley, California in May, which is currently their only North American date in the diary. In July, they'll top the bill at Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Spain, and Nos Alive in Lisbon, Portugal.
