Lost Dogs: 2014 - 2021


2014-2021: They started recording 'Gigaton'  with Brendan O'Brien in the beginning of 2017. 'Can't Deny Me' was released from those sessions. And then three years later Gigaton was released with Josh Evans producing. ‘Can’t deny me was not on Gigaton and has already begun it’s life as a Pearl Jam rarity. Another studio track released from those early sessions was 'Again Today'.

When Josh Evans (producer Gigaton) was asked about outtakes:

They’re always working on something. It’s hard to say, because it’s not really done until it’s out. There are all kinds of things sitting on hard drives — from pieces of ideas to something one of the guys might consider a finished song. As far as mixing the record, these were the only 12 songs we mixed.

On October 2nd 2020 Pearl Jam released a new track and Gigaton outtake called ‘Get it Back’. On Instagram Matt said it was written in 2018. Making it the first outtake being released in years.

At a recent Q&A with fans over at Reddit:

One of the most asked question from fans was about Lost Dogs 2. Mike McCready made the following answer on Lost Dogs 2:

Gigaton is its own record. I’d love to record more music in this time of pandemic but its important that we are all taking measures to be safe. Good Idea about Lost Dogs 2 Ill bet we have the music for that.

I’m sure you do Mike!
