Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard has a new song out with a new band called Painted Shield, but if you think it’s going to sound like Pearl Jam, think again.
The song, called “I Am Your Country,” is a stripped-down, sparse-sounding alt-rock song with a trippy rhythm. Listen to the full tune below.
Painted Shield also features folk singer Mason Jennings, prolific drummer Matt Chamberlain and keyboardist/vocalist Brittany Davis.
“I love making music, and I especially love collaborating with other musicians,” Gossard said in a statement. “That’s the fun part, when you experience synchronicity between the music and the people you’re involved with.”
Painted Shield will release their debut, self-titled album on Nov. 27.
