Jack White's Third Man Records have announced they are to release a live Pearl Jam album through the Third Man Vault subscription series.
The live recording is taken from when the band played a surprise show at Jack White's Third Man Records in Nashville last month (June 9) with White himself appearing onstage with the band.
The impromptu gig in front of just 200 fans (plus country stars Keith Urban and Margo Price) acted as a warm-up to Pearl Jam's headline set at Bonnaroo festival the following weekend.
Our most sincere appreciation and admiration to @PearlJam, who joined us for a live #directtoacetate recording in the #BlueRoom this evening before their @bonnaroo headline set Saturday. They may have even gained an extra guitarist for a song... #thirdmanrecords #pearljam #jackwhite A photo posted by Third Man Records (@thirdmanrecordsofficial) on Jun 9, 2016 at 6:39pm PDT

During the 10-song set, the band covered Pink Floyd's 'Interstellar Overdrive' and were later joined by White for a rendition of their track 'Of The Earth'.
As well as the live album – which is featured on a black-and-gold, split-colored vinyl – the vault package will also include a Pearl Jam x Third Man patch, Eddie Vedder’s record booth 7″ single, which he recorded solo on 6/10, a live photo book, and a Pearl Jam x Third Man pin.
Members of Pearl Jam’s own Ten Club will receive a coupon code entitling them to $15 off the cost of the package.
