A special guest arrived at Easy Street Records ahead of Record Store Day, celebrating his band's highly anticipated album drop.

Eddie Vedder, lead vocalist for Pearl Jam, was seen at the West Seattle Junction on Thursday and Friday, promoting Pearl Jam's 12th studio album "Dark Matter," which dropped on Thursday.


Pearl Jam to release highly anticipated 'Dark Matter' album Thursday

As the countdown to tonight's release begins, anticipation is building among fans for what promises to be another stellar addition to Pearl Jam's legendary discography.

Though Vedder wasn't there on Saturday, the line for Easy Street Records was wrapped around the corner in the morning, with music enthusiasts eagerly waiting to snag some Record Store Day deals and exclusives.

Easy Street Records also went live on the official Pearl Jam Instagram account, giving away signed Dark Matter albums to fans who could answer a specific trivia question about Record Store Day.

The question was about a 2005 Pearl Jam show at Easy Street Records that was held for a specific organization on Record Store Day, before it became Record Store Day. Fans had to name what the organization was to win the album. The answer: The Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS).
