Jeff Ament talks about Brother the Cloud, the new single from Earthling, the upcoming Eddie Vedder’s new album.
In an appearance on WMMR’s Preston & Steve, Ament said, “I just got the whole record yesterday, so I just heard Brother the Cloud. I heard it once yesterday, which is kind of a heavy number from what I could gather. I didn’t look at the lyrics, but whenever I hear first lyrics from Ed, a lot of times there’s a couple of lines that hit me pretty deep and that was definitely one of them. Well, as a kid when I bought records, it was one of those things where you bought a record once a month. You open the package up, and the first time that you listen to it, you read along with the lyrics. And I think I think to this day, that’s sort of how I prefer to listen to music for the first time, if I can actually just like put my headphones on and just sort of read the lyrics as the song is going by. I’m in a band with one of the great singers/lyricists of our time. So I’m always curious, because he’s always kind of shifting his style, and I’m always curious where he’s headed. So, I don’t have the lyrics; I need to get the lyrics to the new record”.
