Pearl Jam dropped a new single today (March  25) with “Quick Escape,” the latest track from their album, Gigaton, which comes out this Friday (March 27.)

The central theme of “Quick Escape” highlights the overall climate change theme that appears to be front and center on Gigaton, which is both figurative and literal since the album’s cover is a photo by photographer/filmmaker/marine biologist Paul Nicklen that shows the Nordaustlandet ice cap in Svalbard, Norway purging mass amounts of melted water.

The release of “Quick Escape” is the third track previewed from Gigaton following “Superblood Wolfmoon” and “Dance of the Clairvoyants.”

Gigaton is available for pre-order at
