Pearl Jam want nine minutes out of your life today — and it’s worth it. The Seattle rockers have dropped a new nine-minute short film about their forthcoming tenth studio album, Lightning Bolt. Directed by Danny Clinch, the clip features snippets of new performances and conversations with guests Judd Apatow, Wild Flag and Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein, four-time world champion surfer Mark Richards, and former NFL star Steve Gleason. There’s also a bevy of startling animation by Andy Smetanka, and Eddie Vedder drives around Seattle on a sunny day. Check out the whole thing below.
Lightning Bolt is due out October 15th via Republic. Pre-orders are ongoing. Check out recent single “Sirens” here.
