On Feb. 11, Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder will add to his solo career with Earthling, a new album officially detailed on Thursday.

Vedder’s third proper full-length solo record and the first since 2011’s Ukulele Songs, he has been previewing it in recent weeks with a few tracks. Accompanying the official album news today was another new song, “The Haves,” which can be heard below:

Earthling was produced by Andrew Watt, the noted Grammy Award-winning producer whose profile has increased in recent years thanks to work with Ozzy Osbourne, Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa and many more.

Another song shared ahead of the record is “Long Way,” which Vedder premiered live at his Ohana Festival in October, backed by a band including Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, legendary bassist Pino Palladino, former Chili Peppers guitarist and current Pearl Jam touring guitarist Josh Klinghoffer (on piano here), Watt and Vedder’s longtime pal and colleague, Glen Hansard.

More on Vedder’s other current activities, per a news release:

Listen to Vedder’s intimate ‘Words + Music’ storytelling performance, I Am Mine, today on Audible HERE.  
In I Am Mine, the latest edition of Audible’s Words + Music series, Vedder dives deep, reflecting on a life at the intersection of art, sensitivity, and masculinity. Vedder is characteristically honest about the challenges of remaining authentic in the face of staggering success. He delivers a raw, emotional story on the perils and joys of fame and friendship, punctuated with exclusive music performance featuring new renditions of classic tracks from both Vedder and Pearl Jam.

Earlier this week, Pearl Jam also announced that its previously postponed North American tour in support of 2020’s Gigaton will reconvene and start back up in May 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.
