Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam announced on Wednesday a new solo album titled Earthling and released the first single from the project, "Long Way."
Earthling has no set release date. Vedder's most recent album was Pearl Jam's Gigaton, which was released in March 2020.
"Long Way" is available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora, Tidal, Deezer and YouTube Music. Fans can pre-order a limited edition vinyl of "Long Way" that will also contain a new track titled "The Haves."
The rockstar also uploaded a lyric video for the single on YouTube that contains black and white footage of a road trip.
"His eyes appear vacant/ He'd taken more than his share/ Trying hard not to awaken/ The voice of regret in his ear/ He can't escape the timeline/ So much worse that he had feared/ Lived every moment/ Wishing the past would disappear," Vedder sings.
Vedder worked on the soundtrack to Sean Penn's latest film Flag Day along with Cat Power. Vedder's daughter Olivia Vedder made her singing debut on song "My Father's Daughter," which appears on the soundtrack.
