Fans Can Preview Pearl Jam’s New Song “Superblood Wolfmoon” By Pointing Their Cellphones At The Moon

Pearl Jam will be releasing a new song titled “Superblood Wolfmoon” on February 19 and fans can preview the track in a unique way.

You can try that out tonight (February 13) by heading to moon.pearljam.com.

Ste Thompson, CEO and creative director of Powster, commented:

“We’re honored to be working with Pearl Jam to bring their music to life through technology blended with the elements of nature that inspired their tone. This activation displays their innovation and creative energy going into their new album. Adapting to new technologies and integrating platforms unleashes the full potential of music, as well as changes the way fans experience new sounds, and we are excited to be teaming up with Pearl Jam to provide their fans with this exclusive look at their style and artistic direction.”

Bill Gerdts, associate director, digital marketing at Republic Records, added:

“Engaging Pearl Jam fans to go outside and experience the moon in an exciting way is a testament to the innovative spirit the band brings to music. This project encompasses Pearl Jam’s desire to engage with their fans and provide a visual representation of what is to come in their new single ‘Superblood Wolfmoon’, and later, in the ‘Gigaton’ album.”

Pearl Jam To Play Intimate Show At Apollo Theater

Pearl Jam will be celebrating the release of their new album “Gigaton” (out March 27) with a special show at the Apollo Theater in New York, NY on March 26. The concert will be an invitation-only event for SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners.

The following was said about the show on siriusxm.com:

“The exclusive concert marks the first time that Pearl Jam has performed at the iconic venue and their first concert in New York City in almost three years. The special event comes days before the band embarks on the U.S. leg of their Pearl Jam 2020 tour. The concert will take place just hours ahead of the release of the band’s new album, Gigaton, which goes on sale at midnight.

The concert will air live nationwide on the band’s dedicated channel, SiriusXM’s Pearl Jam Radio (Ch. 22), now in its 10th year on SiriusXM. Directly following the live concert, Pearl Jam Radio will broadcast and premiere the new album in North America. Upon the album’s release, Pandora will release both a new Pearl Jam Live: A-Z playlist, which will include some of the band’s greatest live performances, and a Pandora Story, where the band will share insights and stories about their new music and iconic songs.”

Stone Gossard commented:

“We are incredibly humbled and honored to take the stage at the legendary Apollo Theatre. We look forward to a memorable show to celebrate Gigaton and the 10-year anniversary of Pearl Jam Radio at SiriusXM. It’s hard to understate the sacred and historical importance of the Apollo to the history of American popular music and African Americans’ preeminent role in its invention. We will play this special one time show with those artists in mind.”

Lamb Of God’s Mark Morton Premieres Music Video For His Cover Of Pearl Jam’s “Black”

Lamb Of God’s Mark Morton has premiered a new video for his cover of Pearl Jam‘s “Black.“ This track features Sons Of Texas’ Mark Morales and it is featured on Morton’s latest EP “Ether.” Morton commented:

“The early 90s was such an important and vibrant time for rock music in general, and I feel like ‘Black‘ is one of the great songs from that era. Our approach in covering it was to present a super stripped down version, sticking to the essence of the song. It’s got a very lonely feel to it and Mark Morales delivered an absolutely incredible vocal performance.”
