The countdown on Pearl Jam's website has finally hit zero and with it comes news that the band will release their 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt, on October 15th. The album cut "Mind Your Manners" is also available for your listening pleasure, and you can now pre-order Lightning Bolt as well.

Helmed by the band's longtime producer Brendan O'Brien (who's also worked with artists including Bruce Springsteen, Audioslave and the Gaslight Anthem), Lighting Bolt follows up the band's last effort, 2009's Backspacer.

Leg two begins November 15th in Dallas and ends with a Seattle homecoming on December 6th. Tickets go on sale July 26th.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
