Pearl Jam's gearing up to release their Dark Matter album in less than a month, and on Friday (March 22), the band got fans excited by sharing another single off the project. "Running" is a fast-paced, punk-inspired track and is led by bassist Jeff Ament.

“Jeff had the main parts for that one, and we worked it over as a band,” guitarist Stone Gossard told SPIN in a recent interview. “I love the bridge. I don’t know what the h*** those chords are that [guitarist] Mike [McCready]’s playing, but it sounds original. It’s one of the last ones we recorded at Shangri-La, and it was fun to come up with one more up tempo song. Ed’s vocal dexterity here and on a few other spots on the album is just stunning.”
