On September 20, Pearl Jam will release its latest record Backspacer, the band’s ninth album.
Because we’re not a music blog, you may wonder why we think you should care. Well, that’s because according to Billboard, the album will be available on Rock Band “the day it comes out.” It’s also reported that Target will have a special edition of the album which will offer access to download the songs to Rock Band via PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace, as well.
We have to say we’re a bit skeptical on “the day it comes out” thing; September 20 is a Sunday, and Rock Band content hits XBLM and PSN on Tuesdays and Thursdays, respectively. But Billboard was pretty clear that it is coming. Pricing is unknown, but with the album featuring 11 tracks, you can probably do the math based on previous album releases.
The full tracklist for the forthcoming album can be found after the jump. You can hear some of it here.
“Gonna See My Friend”
“Amongst the Waves”
“Speed of Sound”
“Force of Nature”
