Pearl Jam shared the visualizer for “Wreckage,” from their recently-released 12th studio album, Dark Matter.

During an interview with Spin, guitarist Stone Gossard revealed how Eddie Vedder and producer Andrew Watt created the track. Said Gossard: “Andrew and Ed worked that out together. One morning, we came in and they had something going on. “That one probably has the biggest build for me personally, in terms of hearing it at first and thinking, it’s kind of an Ed song. I wasn’t quite aware of its potency until later. Andrew encouraged me to play this little harmonic, acoustic part almost like a Cure melody. I’ve been playing along with the song to relearn it and I’m really looking forward to playing it live. It’s a really powerful lyric and I think we did a really great job of taking something and really pushing it to its limit.”

Gossard added about “Wreckage” (per Blabbermouth): “That one probably has the biggest build for me personally, in terms of hearing it at first and thinking, it’s kind of an Ed [Vedder, PEARL JAM singer] song. I wasn’t quite aware of its potency until later. Andrew encouraged me to play this little harmonic, acoustic part almost like a CURE melody. I’ve been playing along with the song to relearn it and I’m really looking forward to playing it live. It’s a really powerful lyric and I think we did a really great job of taking something and really pushing it to its limit.”

Pearl Jam will support the release of their new LP with the ‘Dark Matter’ world tour, kicking off May 4 in Vancouver, Canada.
