NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 07: 2017 Inductee Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam performs onstage at the 32nd Annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center on April 7, 2017 in New York City. The event will broadcast on HBO Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 8:00 pm ET/PT

What a kick off to the week for Pearl Jam fans!

After previewing new track “Can’t Deny Me” to fan club members, that track is not only now available on multiple digital platforms, but the band has confirmed that it’s the first preview to an upcoming new LP!

Per Pearl Jam’s official website, the forthcoming studio album, the band’s first since 2013’s Lightning Bolt, so far doesn’t have any projected release date.  However, “Can’t Deny Me” was recorded in Seattle in February, so clearly, some things are still in the works.

The best news?  A new album likely mean a big tour!  Who can’t get excited about that?
