Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard gearing up to release new solo album this summer
Pearl Jam’s much-anticipated tenth studio album is taking quite a while to wrap up, but guitarist Stone Gossard is keeping plenty busy with his side project Brad and his solo project. Gossard is gearing up to release a new solo album, “Moonlander,” on June 25, and the recently debuted a new song, “Your Flames,” from the album via Billboard. Take a listen to the tune below.
On “Your Flames,” Gossards says the song came to him in a dream. He told Billboard it’s “a story about this moment in a dream where you shock yourself by doing something that you wouldn’t expect that you would do which in this case was smacking my nephew in the face. And going, ‘oh my God, how did I just do that?’ But then the irony is that he… he’s sort unfazed by it.”
The track will also arrive on Gossard’s “Apollo,” out now on iTunes. Another four-song EP, “Lunda,” will drop on June 4, in advance of the full album.
In Pearl Jam news, Gossard says the band’s new album is finally almost finished. “We’re almost done,” he said. “It’s sounding great. I think people are going to be excited about it. It’s still crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s right now and trying to get it finished, so that’s the plan.”
