All year long Pearl Jam fans have been celebrating PJ20, the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Ten, that put one of the most influential rock bands on the map. Eddie Vedder and the crew have been treating their fans with releases all year, including the release of Live on Ten Legs (the compilation of live tracks from world tours from 2003-2010), reissues of Vs. and Vitalogy in a deluxe format, the upcoming release of the Pearl Jam Twenty film (accompanied by a book and soundtrack album), and finally, a 20th anniversary destination weekend bash to be held this Labor Day Weekend at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin.

Carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely and never-before-seen footage, plus 24 hours of recently shot concert and interview footage, Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of the seminal band as told by Academy Award-winning director and music journalist Cameron Crowe.

To accompany the film, Pearl Jam is also releasing a Pearl Jam Twenty soundtrack. The soundtrack includes 29 rare and unreleased tracks on 2 CDs, hand-picked by Cameron Crowe with his original liner notes and never-before-seen photos in a 36-page booklet that is packaged in a hard bound book.

A DVD of the film with bonus features will be released on October 25 following a broadcast premiere of the film on PBS’s American Masters series on October 21.
