The group has also confirmed the full track list for the set, which, at 15 tracks, ranks as Pearl Jam's longest album to date. A handful of the songs, such as opener "Can't Keep" and "Thumbing My Way," were premiered earlier this year by frontman Eddie Vedder during solo concerts in California. The folk-tinged "I Am Mine," which is musically reminiscent of such prior favorites as "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town" and "Better Man," was debuted by the full band at last year's Bridge School Benefit concert.
The new set was produced by Pearl Jam with Adam Kasper and mixed by frequent collaborator Brendan O'Brien. The group is expected to return to the live stage with a few shows later this year, before launching a world tour in early 2003.
Here is the tracklist for "Riot Act":
"Love Boat Captain"
"I Am Mine"
"Thumbing My Way"
"All or None"
