Pearl Jam album cover revealed, and sweet pre-order deal

So, wow, one of the best things about being a music blogger is that people representing PEARL JAM (who, as you all know are probably my favorite band) send me stuff regarding the new album! I am so excited, this is fab. Here is the cover of the new album. Why is there an avocado? Jury’s still out on that one. But they are a fabulous source of healthy fats in your diet.

A few related tidbits that I’ve found:

  • Rolling Stone recently had a listen of the album and offered up some more tantalizing details about the music: “The title, Pearl Jam, reflects the group’s most collaborative effort yet: It produced the album together, along with Adam Kasper; each member will receive writing credits; and, for the first time ever, guitarist Mike McCready contributes lyrics, to the album closer ‘Inside Job.’ Gossard’s two musical pieces, ‘Parachutes,’ an island-flavored beauty with acoustic guitars, a Wurlitzer, and shifting time signatures, and ‘Life Wasted,’ which features a bridge reminiscent of Pink Floyd, are among twelve or thirteen tracks that made the final cut.”

  • I love PJ, but the last three records were really just a trudging out of the same stuff. If this record sounds “different” that would be a huge step forward for me. And, on a side note I cannot believe that Alice in Chains is touring!?

  • Avocado is full of monounsaturated fatty acids ie “The good fats”. When eaten, these fats can actually help to reduce cholesterol by helping to remove the rubbish ie “bad fats”. Is PJ album the “good fat”…..I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
