    Ament recently announced his debut album ‘Heaven/Hell’ via Pearl Jam’s official site, though there’s no official release date as of yet.

    Giving fans a taste of what’s to come, Ament has unveiled ‘Safe in the Car’, featuring US singer-songwriter Angel Olsen. The musician has previously said he’s a fan of the ‘Shut Up Kiss Me’ artist.

    Olsen provides backing vocals on the swaggering, distorted track – which also features Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Matt Cameron on guitar and drums respectively.

    The band are scheduled to play two nights at London’s O2 in June, followed by appearances at Madrid’s Mad Cool and NOS Alive festivals.

    Angel Olsen’s previous release came in the form of ‘Phases’ – a collection of unreleased material, B-sides and rarities from across her career. NME described it as “a deeply autumnal album, perfect for listening to while strolling down dimly lit side streets with crisp leaves underfoot.”
