Pearl Jam (opens in new tab) have released a snippet of music from their upcoming single Superblood Wolfmoon.
However, rather than simply stream the clip online, Pearl Jam want fans to be a bit more creative: Point you phone towards the lunar surface using augmented reality software on the band’s website, and you’ll be rewarded with the audio clip.
You can, of course, cheat by scanning a picture of the moon on your laptop or desktop PC… but where’s the fun in that?
The full single will be released on February 18.
Superblood Wolfmoon and Dance Of The Clairvoyants will both feature on Pearl Jam’s new studio album Gigaton, which is set for release on March 27 through Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records.
Speaking about the new album with Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 show (opens in new tab), guitarist Stone Gossard said: “It's going to be the variety that our fans will be excited about.
“There's definitely some really straight ahead rock songs. There's some very spare and very simple ballads. It's got it all, I think. And it's really us.
“We really did it by ourselves. Vocalist Eddie Vedder did a great job. There was a pile of songs and he mixed and selected the tracks that really were going to be special. He did such a great job of bringing everybody's personalities out.
“It was probably different than any of us would have made individually, but it really captures, I think, the spirit of the band.”
Pearl Jam have already announced a European tour for this summer, including a headline spot at the prestigious Hyde Park British Summer Time event in London in July, and also recently confirmed a series of US dates for the spring.
