Pearl Jam is previewing their new album, Gigaton, in one of the most throwback ways possible: By telephone hotline.

The band shared the following post to their social media channels along with the caption, “Call the #PearlJam #Gigaton hotline to preview the new album before it’s out this Friday 3/27. 585-207-3275”

When you call the number, fans will get a 30-second preview of all 12 tracks on the album in all of their delightfully muffled audio glory. Even with the sub-par audio quality (it is a hotline, after all), the album sounds pretty great and will surely provide some much-needed entertainment to all of us that are currently under self-quarantine, stay-at-home orders or which other term you prefer to use meaning “stuck indoors.”
