I Should Be Outside - Full Tracklisting

A bit of guessing here, but it seems like we have the full tracklist for Jeff Ament's upcoming solo album, I Should Be Outside.  The Ten Club will be releasing a newsletter tomorrow (with pre-sale info?) and "Until We Meet Again" sounds like an album closer.

It looks like, from the descriptions on Ament's Instagram posts that this will be, at least in part, a cover/tribute album.  Some of the songs, The Unheard Music (X) and 25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago), are covers, but in others, Insect of Someone Else's Thought, Chairman, and Freedom, he strongly references the work of Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Devo without specifically lifting the song title.
I don’t really believe this, but if you make it past 50, your life should really be a tribute to all the important people and creatures that got you here. So in a sense, you will meet their energy again. #fortheones *this: the western religion of “we’ll all be together having a picnic in the clouds, or burning in one of the seven circles of eternal flame.” It’s an individual trip, no judgment, no righteousness, no evangelism. #flexyourhead
Hopefully, we'll know more tomorrow! 

1. I Hear Ya
2. Bandwidth
3. Insect of Someone Else's Thought (Lou Reed tribute?)
4. Mind Eraser
5. The Unheard Music (X cover)
6. Be a Rainbow
7. Tell the Barber
8. Chairman (Iggy Pop tribute?)
9. 25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago cover)
10. Freedom (Devo tribute?)
11. Until We Meet Again (Minor Threat tribute?)

Pearl Jam Funko Pop!aPalooza


Pearl Jam and Funko Pop! have announced the pre-sale of their Pearl Jam 5-pack Funko Pop! collectible figurines.  You can order a box for $50 (+ $8 domestic S&H) directly from the Ten Club right now (They've been up for 2 hours and haven't even sold out!).  The website says, "We have reserved an amount from Funko, this presale may sell out. This is NOT an open ended presale where units are made to order. This is NOT a 10c Exclusive. Buy directly from the band," so you can expect these to go up at other outlets soon.

The band looks dressed right out of the Ten era, including Matt Cameron, who was in Soundgarden at the time, and didn't join the band until 1998 for the Yield Tour, but ... y'know, decisions must be made.

4th of July by Painted Shield

Painted Shield, featuring Stone Gossard and Matt Chamberlain, released their new single, 4th of July, this morning via all the music services, including a video directed by Regan Hagar.  No word yet on whether an album is on the way.
