You’ve been waiting patiently and the tracklisting for the Pearl Jam Twenty soundtrack was unveiled throughout yesterday via a Twitter scavenger hunt on PJ20.com. These clues were scattered all over the world and the first person to correctly identify a song was awarded with a limited edition PJ20 poster. Here’s a pic of the clue for “Black” which was displayed at Times Square. Kind of a Vanilla Sky moment, huh?

The soundtrack features 29 songs spread over two CD’s when it’s released on September 20, 2011.  A vinyl version is also forthcoming.

    Great, can’t wait to hear it and of course to see the film. Well pleased that ‘Walk With Me’ is there and intruiged by ‘It Ain’t Like That’ – must be AIC, rather than PJ playing AIC?

      It’s mookie playing AIC. An early tribute to their friends in Alice in Chains…

    I used to listen to PJ back in the day…when I felt all teenager-like and angry.  Lightweight rock for post-fraternity closet dwellers…safety doesn’t ensure timelessness

    Cameron, thanks for giving to Pearl Jam’s fans around the globe this gift, this valuable treasure (A documentary, a book and most important…MUSIC). Twenty years of a band it’s a great occasion  to celebrate. Pearl Jam deserves that. This is also the celebration of a long-time friendship between you and the band, in my humble opinion. Thanks a lot
