The tweet also included a picture, which could be related to the upcoming album’s artwork, which you can see below.

According to Revolt TV, classic Seattle grunge-rock band Pearl Jam are to release a new song entitled ‘Mind Your Manners’. The single woud be their first release since 2011’s ‘Olé’. The single was listed on the radio industry website as being released on the 16th July, although it has since been removed, and the date is as-yet unconfirmed.
“You’ll wet your pants over this. Think ‘Spin the Black Circle’. Short, sharp, hard and loud. If it’s any indication of the album that’s to come (rumoured October release), the guys have picked up where they left Backspacer and added turbo charging. PJ fans are gonna love it.”
This comes amid rumours of a new Pearl Jam album, supposedly named ‘Tides’ and with an October release date.

“When I think how it happened, too, with people who I like a lot, that we just decided to go into the studio and do something… And then it turns out like this? It’s absolutely remarkable, because no-one was prepared for this!”
The track, which was released as the first single from the French house duo’s first album since 2005’s generally underwhelming Human After All, Random Access Memories (although in 2010 they did release a soundtrack album for Disney’s ‘Tron: Legacy‘ film) seems to have been instantly adopted by both the mainstream music platforms, and the more specialised electronic music platforms as an instant classic.
