Pearl Jam Shares “Retrograde” Music Video

Today, Pearl Jam revealed the music video for the Gigaton single “Retrograde.”

For the visual, the band teamed up with director Josh Wakely [Beat BugsMotown Magic]. The animated clip opens with a lone traveler driving through the rain and descending upon a strip mall. Visiting a psychic, the protagonist witnesses the destruction of the world in a crystal ball as the seas overtake the Eiffel Tower in Paris, London Bridge in London, and the group’s native Seattle. Fluid animation moves like an oil painting in motion as the animated musicians—Eddie VedderStone GossardMike McCreadyJeff Ament, and Matt Cameron—step out of their respect tarot cards and into a march. While the water continues to rise climate change activist and revolutionary Greta Thunberg appears behind the crystal ball as a clairvoyant.

“Retrograde” is the latest single from the band’s new album, Gigaton—available now.
