Spin To Feature Pearl Jam Cover

OK, I have to admit, I can't tell if this article from Spin.com is promsing two Pearl Jam covers or three.     I think three.  The one below is apparently "too-hot-for-newstands," and subscriber only version is animated.  I guess that leaves a non-animated, newstand-friendly cover yet to be seen.

Autumn 2009 is Pearl Jam season: As the Seattle alt-rockers plow through their U.S. tour and release their ninth studio album, Backspacer, on September 20, they'll also make an appearance on the cover of our October issue, on newsstands September 22.

And, for die-hard fans, there's a special, limited edition version of our October issue featuring a 12-page portfolio of classic photographs from Pearl Jam sessions and live concerts, as well as rare behind-the-scenes moments. It also sports a too-hot-for-newsstands cover depicting Eddie Vedder flipping the middle finger. Rock!

SPIN's October issue is also arriving with two additional covers: Newsstand customers get an amazing photo of the band, taken by Rankin, while subscriber copies have an illustration of Pearl Jam on the cover, commissioned exclusively from Tom Tomorrow, the artist who crafted Backspacer's cover art! Every October issue also includes a special pull-out poster of the Tom Tomorrow illustration.

You can buy the special, limited edition version at spin.com.
