New Pearl Jam – “Supersonic”

Pearl Jam really hit the Target with their Cameron Crowe directed video for “The Fixer” the other day, and today we get studio sounds from that track’s b-side, “Supersonic.” (It also appears as track 8 on the Backspacer LP.) “Supersonic” pairs well with “The Fixer” — another quick shot of PJ trying to demonstrate they’re vital(ogy) despite their years via uptempo power chords, a quick riffed bridge giving McCready a shred showcase, and EdVed asking big, defiant questions and saying the word “shit.” Rock.

Thanks for the tip, Ben. And if you’re wondering how it sounds live, here’s the first live performance last week in London:

Backspacer is out 9/20.
