Stream Stone Gossard’s Benevolent, Rollicking ‘Both Live’

Stone Gossard 'Both Live' Moonlander Stream

Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard has already shared two songs from his upcoming sophomore solo album, Moonlander (due June 25 via Pearl Jam’s own Monkeywrench Records) — “I Need Something Different” and “Moonlander” — and now he offers a third. “Both Live” has peace-loving honky-tonk vibe, and features light-footed piano, churning guitar, and Gossard cheering: “Do what you’ve got to do.”

In a statement on PJ’s website, Gossard explains, “It’s a song I wrote while paddling on Lake Washington thinking about a friend who I dreamed set me free from a past restraint. It’s more-or-less about how meditation on a conflict can give way to a new understanding. One person doesn’t have to lose for the other to win.”
