Announced a few weeks back, Earthling will be Vedder’s third proper full-length solo record and the first since 2011’s Ukulele Songs. He previewed it with “The Haves”:

And “Long Way,” which was premiered live at his Ohana Festival in October with that backing band mentioned earlier.

After his solo tour, Vedder will get back to business with Pearl Jam, which recently announced that its previously postponed North American tour in support of 2020’s Gigaton will reconvene and start back up in May 2022. The dates will be revealed in early 2022:

Thank you, Pearl Jam fans, for your patience and flexibility as we have waited to reschedule the band’s postponed 2020 North American tour.

We are confirming that the previously scheduled shows in North America will start in May 2022. We are working to finalize the details of the new tour schedule and will announce the dates early next year.

For nearly two years, the band has wanted nothing more than to play their new music live for you. The whole Pearl Jam team shares your excitement for us all to be safely on the road again together.
