Pearl Jam

On the band's new self-titled eighth album, Pearl Jam sounds more at home in its skin than ever. The 13-track set probes the human toll of the post-September 11 world via a rich tapestry of characters and narrators. The album arrives May 2 via J Records, Pearl Jam's first for the label after ending its career-long association with Epic in 2003.

Ten Club head Tim Bierman says fans who pre-order the new set through will receive a bonus disc of the band's January 31, 1992, opening set for Keith Richards in New York as well as a special code that allows for a full download of "Pearl Jam" at 12:01 a.m. EDT on street date. Additional pre-order campaigns are rolling out with iTunes, and Best Buy.
