There is just one man who may get me to soberly climb onto my constructing’s rooftop for a gimmicky synthetic actuality app in the midst of February, and his identify is Eddie Vedder, the frontman of ‘90s Seattle grunge group Pearl Jam.
On Thursday, Pearl Jam rolled out a snippet of a brand new tune entitled “Superblood Wolfmoon” you can solely hearken to by pointing your cellphone on the Moon. If you happen to go to moon.pearljam.com, you’ll be greeted with a display that asks you to align an on-screen circle with the Moon. When you line all the things up, animations hover round your real-world Moon which might be timed to the music.
The app, which was developed with an organization known as Powster, is tough to trick, too. Yesterday, I messaged the hyperlink to all of my closest mates, and it wasn’t darkish sufficient for a few of them on the opposite facet of the nation to see the Moon. One pal tried holding up 1 / 4 as a stand-in Moon and couldn’t get it to work.
The monitor gained’t be migrating over to Spotify, Apple Music, or another streaming service till February 18th. So when you’re a Vedder superfan like me, you’ll have to face out within the chilly along with your cellphone pointed towards the Moon to listen to the identical few seconds of the identical tune for one more 4 days.
Pearl Jam’s new document Gigaton is due out on March 27th, and the band will head out on a North American tour one week earlier than the album is launched.
