Pearl Jam’s 10th album Lightning Bolt come out on October 14, and the band has slowly premiered new songs at shows this summer—including a rain-delayed marathon set at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. Now it's released a video for the album’s second single, the six minute slow-burning “Siren.” Directed by Danny Clinch—who also helmed the Pearl Jam concert film Immagine In Cornice and the video for Lightning Bolt’s first single “Mind Your Manners”—it’s a simple performance video with stark lighting (in what looks like the same studio space as the “Mind Your Manners” video), dropping any semblance of stylistic frills. But it’s a powerhouse of 12-string guitars, piano, harmonized vocals, and guitar solos that shows there’s still life yet in Eddie Vedder and company.
