Veteran rockers Pearl Jam have released a music video for "Sirens," a single off their upcoming album Lightning Bolt, which is set for release on October 15th. In contrast to the high-voltage pummeling that was the first single from the album, "Mind Your Manners," this track finds the band embracing their more introspective side: Eddie Vedder gives a poignant vocal performance, and he's backed by soaring guitar riffs and a driving bass line for a great mid-tempo rocker. Dan Clinch directed the video, which features the group giving a dramatic performance on a stage streaked with light and shadow. Clinch directed the music video for "Mind Your Manners" as well.
Although they've been around for over twenty years, Pearl Jam shows no signs of letting up. In an interview with Billboard, Brendan O' Brien, the producer for Lightning Bolt, said that "Sirens" is "one of the best songs they've ever made." He also noted that Vedder "sings his ass off on this record," pointing to this single as the best example of his vocal talent on the album.
