Pearl Jam revealed the pre-order details and track listing for their upcoming album Backspacer on their official Website today. The LP is available in two formats through the band's Website, as both a "Ten Club/Indie Package" CD (similar to the packaging of their last self-titled album, or Avocado as the site calls it) and 180-gram vinyl featuring a 24-page booklet featuring original art by cartoonist Tom Tomorrow. Some perspective artwork — including the cover that Conan O'Brien quickly flashed when Pearl Jam played the debut episode of The Tonight Show — is up on the Pearl Jam site now with the disclaimer "Not Actual Release Artwork." As Rock Daily previously reported, Backspacer is out September 20th.
Fans can also order a 7'' white vinyl of Backspacer's first single "The Fixer," which debuted in an excerpted form last night during the Major League Baseball All-Star game. While the single will be released to digital services and radio on July 20th, the 7'', backed by Backspacer track "Supersonic," won't be sent out until August 24th. As for the Backspacer track list, there's 11 songs on there, including "Got Some," which the band debuted when they performed on The Tonight Show.
Rock Daily reported last month that even though Pearl Jam granted the retail exclusive for Backspacer to Target, the band's own Ten Club and independent music stores will also distribute the band's ninth studio album. Last week, Pearl Jam announced their opening slate of tour dates to support Backspacer, which was named after the sea turtle the band sponsored in the Great Turtle Race.
