Arctic Monkeys got a little help from an old friend during a recent tour stop in Los Angeles. Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme! NICE! Josh joined Arctic Monkeys during the song "Knee Socks," which closed out the band's set at the Wiltern last week. This is kick ass because Homme also plays on the studio version of the track, which is on the new album "AM." (He plays on the song "One for the Road" as well)
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner recently returned the favor by singing on the latest Queens of the Stone Age album, "...Like Clockwork."
I'm a big fan of Pearl Jam. I'm in the Ten Club, I have my import of "Ten" with Dirty Frank on it, and I was in line at Greywhale in Taylorsville for the Midnight release of "VS." back in 1993.
So my hopes are high with the new album. Even though I thought pretty much everything after Vitalogy was kinda "meh". I've heard three tracks of the new album, and I've dug 'em.
Today we have a few new details about "Lightning Bolt." Eddie and pals recently unveiled the track list for their tenth studio effort, which is due out next month. Fans are already familiar with some of the songs, including "Lightning Bolt's" lead single, "Mind Your Manners." Which we play here on X96. Pearl Jam also showed off the title track and the album closer, "Future Days," during their concert at Chicago's Wrigley Field earlier this summer. Another song, "Sleeping By Myself," showed up on frontman Eddie Vedder's 2011 solo album, "Ukulele Songs."
The "Lightning Bolt" song titles first started coming out on the band's official Twitter account along with illustrations by Don Pendleton. Bassist Jeff Ament posted a note on PearlJam.com calling the visual artist one of his favorites, adding that it's nice to go outside the circle now and then to "work/play" with other artists.
Pearl Jam's "Lightning Bolt" track list:
1. "Getaway" 2. "Mind Your Manners" 3. "My Father's Son" 4. "Sirens" 5. "Lightning Bolt" 6. "Infallible" 7. "Pendulum" 8. "Swallowed Whole" 9. "Let the Records Play" 10. "Sleeping By Myself" 11. "Yellow Moon" 12. "Future Days"
