Pearl Jam have shared an official live music video for “Sirens”, the second single off their tenth studio album, Lightning Bolt, out October 15th. Directed by David Clinc, who also directed their 2007 concert film, Imagine in Cornice, it is soulful, mysterious, and shadowed.
There’s always at least one ballad-y, slower song on every Pearl Jam album. Songs like “Present Tense” (No Code, 1996) and “Arc” (Riot Act, 2002) showcase how much frontman Eddie Vedder has grown as a songwriter. “Sirens” is set to serve the same purpose for Lightning Bolt. It’s a soft and reflective song about life, love, death, and everything in between, with that drive and kick we all expect from Pearl Jam.
The video released with the single really shows how much the band has matured. Physically and musically they have achieved an unimaginable amount of success and growth as they power through their third decade as a band. As Vedder sings in the new single, “all things change.” For him, it seems they change only for the better.
