Pearl Jam had planned to showcase their new record Gigaton with a “Visual Album Experience,” promising eye-catching visuals from Evolve Studios with Dolby Atmos immersive audio. And then, like pretty much all in-person events, those plans were cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. However, if you have the Apple TV app the band have announced they will make the experience available on the platform for a limited time, before it becomes available to buy or rent.
Apple TV users will be able to watch / listen for free for the first week of the experience being online, but unlike some other musical experiences the film will then become available for purchase. The event will still be available with the audiovisual depth provided by Dolby Atmos and 4K Dolby Vision. Gigaton producer Josh Evans said in a statement: “I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and performances. It’s truly a unique way to experience this album.”
Gigaton was released on 27 March this year, marking the group’s 11th studio record. It was preceded by the singles Dance of the Clairvoyants, Superblood Wolfmoon and Quick Escape.
The experience is available over at tv.apple.com.
