Update: The new track was released to the public today (March 13) and is now streaming in its entirety. The just-over-two-and-a-half-minute song was co-produced by the band and Brendan O’Brien and is set to appear on their forthcoming LP, according to the official Pearl Jam website. They’re yet to announce a release date for the new studio album, which will follow 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
Take a listen to “Can’t Deny Me” below:
Pearl Jam has shared “Can’t Deny Me,” the band’s first new song in five years, with members of the official Ten Club fan club.
The song seems to contain a few pointed references to Donald Trump with lines like “You may be rich but you can’t deny me/ Got nothing but the will to survive” and “The country you are representing/ Condition critical.”
Listen to the song by logging in here, and check out a little preview clip below.
