Pearl Jam Rock Conan, Target
It was a big night for Conan O’Brien and Pearl Jam. The funnyman officially transferred hosting duties from Late Night to the Tonight Show yesterday, and the Seattle band was there to kick things off with a debut of their own. The former grunge group performed new song “Get Some” from the upcoming, tentatively-titled album Backspacer, due out this fall.
Pearl Jam has partnered up with Target to release the album, but it won’t be an exclusive. Instead, the band is without a label for the first time in 18 years, and is partnering with an assortment of outlets. Director Cameron Crowe also shot some much rumored footage of the band performing at venerated Seattle venue The Showbox. Yes, some of it will be used in a Target commercial, but it will also be spliced into a project Crowe is working on to celebrate the band’s twentieth anniversary.
