Pearl Jam guitarist to release solo album in June

Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard will release his sophomore solo album, “Moonlander,” on June 25.

The project features appearances from Gossard's fellow musicians including Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), Matt Chamberlain, Regan Hagar (Brad, Malfunkshun, Satchel), Pete Droge, Brandon Harper, Gregg Keplinger, Keith Lowe, Barbara Ireland (The Fags) and Hans Teuber.

"Songs from the album were recorded between 2003-2011," Stone explains. "Over the last year, I went through all of my old demos and recordings that weren’t used as Pearl Jam or Brad songs and picked my favorites.”

Gossard is offering the lead single, “I Need Something Different,” as both a preview stream and FREE download here.

The guitarist will issue a new song each Tuesday - for the next 10 weeks - starting today at www.pearljam.com/moonlander

Two digital EPs, “Apollo” and “Luna”, will be released on iTunes on May 7th and June 4th

As for Pearl Jam, the band is working on a new album and have announced three live shows, including July dates in London, ON and Chicago’s Wrigley Field, as well as a headlining appearance at the Voodoo Music & Arts Experience in New Orleans this November.
