Pearl Jam has confirmed that its new song “Can’t Deny Me” is from the band’s upcoming 11th studio album and first since 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
The song, with lyrics by singer Eddie Vedder and music by guitarist Mike McCready, was co-produced by Pearl Jam and longtime collaborator Brendan O’Brien. The track was recorded in Seattle last month and released as a surprise early download to fan club members last Saturday (March 10th).
“Can’t Deny Me” has since been made available for purchase at PearlJam.com and via all digital stores and streaming services. The song appears to take direct aim at Donald Trump — although without mentioning his name.
A release date and title for the full album have yet to be revealed.
Pearl Jam is kicking off a South American tour this week and has shows scheduled for Europe and North America in the coming months.
