Backspacer, the much anticipated new album from Pearl Jam will drop on September 20 at “Target and other select retailers.” Oh, Eddie Vedder, remember when you still owned your soul?

The tour’s Sept. 21 kick-off on the band’s Seattle home turf comes the day after the Sept. 20 release of “Backspacer,” the group’s ninth studio album. The group recently announced plans to self-release the set via a direct distribution deal with Target and other retailers.

On July 20, “The Fixer,” the lead-off single from the forthcoming album, will hit radio and digital retailers. The song will be the second cut unveiled to the public; the band debuted a track titled “Got Some” during a June 1 appearance on the debut episode of “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.” []

Al Pearl Jam tour dates after the jump. (I imagine a New York date will be added shortly.)

  1. Absolutely love Mr.Vedder’s music! I have been a fan since the TEN album. I have to admit; love him best, when it is just him and his guitar! I will see him in concert, before I die, so if, a New York show is added, PLEASE let us know!! :)
