On September 22, Migraine Music will release Matt Cameron’s first solo album, Cavedweller, already available for pre-order in digital format and vinyl at pearljam.com.
“I thought it would be cool to use that name again three decades later,” said Matt, who cut a handful of solo songs on Seattle cassette compilations under the name Cavedweller in the 1980’s. “I’ve been writing my own songs since I was 17-years-old. I always enjoyed playing guitar and trying to cultivate my voice as a songwriter. However, I’ve been lucky to play in bands with the best singers and lyricists of my generation. My voice was never necessarily needed in them. With this album, I wanted to really make my vocals and guitar playing come through. It’s almost like I tried to start a solo career 30 years ago, and I’m just now getting back to it.”
The first single, Time Can’t Wait, will be available for streaming on September 8. Here’s the tracklist:
01 Time Can’t Wait
02 All At Once
04 Through The Ceiling
05 One Special Lady
06 In The Trees
07 Into The Fire
08 Real And Imagined
