A nice, unexpected surprise on a Monday: new Pearl Jam! This showed up out of the blue today; leaked from an “internal promo disc” used during the production of the band’s rarities album, Lost Dogs (2003). So it’s not “new,” necessarily, but the public-at-large hasn’t heard it ’til today, so that’s enough of a qualifier to call it as such.
Here’s the full tracklist, most of which is already available in stores (and is thus not presented in audio form below):
Anything In Between[audio:01_anything_in_between.mp3]
In The Moonlight
Puzzle And Game[audio:07_puzzle_and_game.mp3]
Just A Girl[audio:12_just_a_girl.mp3]
Alone (From 10)
Don’t Gimme No Lip
Against The 70’s
New Jeremy (From A Bootleg)[audio:18_new_jeremy.mp3]
None of the new ones are particularly awe-inspiring, but others provide a nice glimpse into the developmental stages of the songs, for better or worse. I’m all for Pearl Jam releasing every B-side, outtake, instrumental, jam session and anything in between (get it?) they’ve ever recorded.
