STONE GOSSARD TO RELEASE "MOONLANDER" ON JUNE 25TH

STONE GOSSARD TO RELEASE SOPHOMORE SOLO ALBUM AND ART COLLABORATION, "MOONLANDER", ON JUNE 25TH

New Song + Accompanying Piece of Original Artwork Available Every Tuesday for the next 10 Weeks Starting Today at www.pearljam.com/moonlander

Two digital EPs, Apollo and Luna, will be released on iTunes on May 7th and June 4th

Stone Gossard will release his sophomore solo album, Moonlander, on Tuesday June 25th in digital and limited edition vinyl formats via Monkeywrench Records. 

The debut track from Moonlander, "I Need Something Different", is available for free download beginning today at www.pearljam.com/moonlander. Each Tuesday for the next 10 weeks, a stream of a new album track and corresponding piece of original artwork will be revealed on the site.

"Songs from the album were recorded between 2003-2011," explains Gossard.  "Over the last year, I went through all of my old demos and recordings that weren’t used as Pearl Jam or Brad songs and picked my favorites. With the help of Floyd Reitsma (Studio Litho engineer), Pete Droge (Executive Producer), and Hans Teuber (multi-instrumentalist and long time Hank Khoir collaborator) I went about trying to finish them. This included lots of re-singing tracks, fleshing out and re-editing, adding new instruments..."

Moonlander consists of 11 original songs written and performed by Gossard as well as 11 accompanying pieces of artwork.

"My daughter loves to paint and draw and when she would, I would as well," says Gossard. "I hope the pieces convey a sense of freedom from formal rules and of playfulness that comes from hanging with your lovely 5-year old."

Moonlander Tracklisting:
 1.    I Need Something Different
 2.    Moonlander
 3.    Both Live
 4.    Your Flames
