Pearl Jam to release 'Gigaton' visual experience


Pearl Jam are improvising with their ‘visual experience’ of their most recent album Gigaton amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

The band, who released their eleventh studio album in March, had originally planned to bring their ‘Gigaton Listening Experience‘ to over 200 Dolby Atmos equipped cinemas around the world for a special, one night only audio-visual event.

Now, however, as the coronavirus pandemic has enforced a strict lockdown amid social distancing measures, Pearl Jam has teamed up with Apple TV to bring their immersive experience online.

Starting on April 24, Pearl Jame’s latest effort will be free to all Apple TV app users in over 100 countries for seven days. The show will then be available before to rent or buy, here.

“I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and performances,” Gigaton producer Josh Evans said.

He added: “It’s truly a unique way to experience this album.”

Gigaton was Pearl Jam’s first release since 2013’s Lightning Bolt and you can stream it, below.
