New Pearl Jam – Better Days

All the props to Antiquiet for picking this one up. Since I really have nothing to add, I’ll just repost what they wrote with the added perk of a downloadable mp3 file.

We’re not exactly sure who Pete is, but he just posted a song online on behalf of Pearl Jam’s manager Kelly Curtis. A Pearl Jam song. An unreleased one. Called Better Days.

I suppose it wouldn’t hurt if we listened, too.

A few minutes ago it was posted here, with the message “Gary, Kelly wanted you to hear this please give it a listen.”

That’s all we know. Rumor has it this is a b-side from Backspacer… or the self-titled album. No one claims to be sure Riot Act. But we kinda like it.

Update, sort of: For whatever it’s worth, Johnny thinks this recording is much newer than the Riot Act sessions.

So there you have it. A new/old Pearl Jam song for your enjoyment. Let us know what you think in the comments.

  1. I tend to agree that this is a post-Riot Act song. The vocals and instrumentation sure sounds Into the Wild-esque. Maybe this shows up on the forthcoming Backspacer-sequel EP?? I can hope.
