"Mind Your Manners," the first single from Pearl Jam's forthcoming album "Lightning Bolt," has arrived online. Fans can listen to the track above.
The brief, blistering song -- which NPR compared to Bad Brains, but actually sounds like "Spin the Black Circle" from Pearl Jam's third album, "Vitalogy" -- features this caustic bit of lyricism from lead singer Eddie Vedder: "Tried my patience / My patience tried / This world's no longer good enough / That makes me wanna cry." Not the potential of "Lightning Bolt," however, the first Pearl Jam studio album in four years. The record is due out on Oct. 15, so Pearl Jam fans would be wise to start counting the days.
"Mind Your Manners" is above. Listen LOUD.
