Pearl Jam Song Leaked Online
A new Pearl Jam song has been leaked onto the internet – by the band’s own label.The song, Better Days, suddenly appeared on the official Monkeywrench Records site (www.monkeywrenchrecords.com), together with the mysterious message: ‘Gary, Kelly wanted you to hear this. Please give it a listen’. There’s strong speculation that the ‘Kelly’ in question is Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis.
However, as word spread about the new song being streamed, the website went into lockdown. You now need a username and password to get access. But there are doubtless now other sites which have the track.
According to rollingstone.com, it’s something of a soaring ballad. ‘Mandolins and accordions crescendo as Vedder sings, “Our future is paved in better days” in the song’s triumphant climax’.
The band haven’t commented at all on the song, leaving fans to wonder if this is brand new, or something that may be unreleased from earlier sessions.
