It has been two decades since Pearl Jam exploded onto the rock scene, and lately there has been a thick fog of nostalgia that has settled on the music world.  Their debut album, Ten, launched the band onto the mainstream arena and forever branded their unique sound in ears of listeners. Twenty years later, Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Singles), a long-time friend and fan, is ready to share his latest documentary that chronicles the life, accomplishments and music of the band.  Crowe blends performance footage with talking heads and narration, and the combination paints a heart-warming portrait of the musicians. The film has premiered in theaters around town and will play on PBS in October.

Cameron Crowe is a revered name is both the film and music community. Before he was writing and directing blockbuster films he was writing about music for Rolling Stone. His love and understanding of incredible music is illustrated by the scoring and soundtracks of his movies. Crowe recently directed the music video for Pearl Jam’s “The Fixer” and has been somewhat covertly working on a Pearl Jam documentary since 2009. The documentary will integrate archive footage from the bands 20 year history and will be a conglomeration of live performances, interviews and candid behind the scenes peeks. The film’s debut falls on the Seattle super band’s 20th anniversary and will be accompanied by sound track and book chronicling PJ’s legacy.

In May, Pearl Jam played a secret show at Seattle’s Showbox in anticipation of their new album Backspacer. Now, the result of that surreptitious concert has been revealed in the Cameron Crowe-directed video for the new LP’s first single “The Fixer.” Another track off the LP, “Supersonic,” leaked out this weekend as fans began receiving the 7′’ inch single for “The Fixer,” which boasted “Supersonic” as its B side.

Encapsulating the angst of both Gen-X and the burgeoning grunge movement, 1992’s Singles, written and directed by Cameron Crowe, follows the entangled love lives of singletons living in Seattle during its musical heyday. From cheesy dating services to unplanned pregnancies, these twentysomethings’ search for love is as frustrating as the iconic music – from Pearl Jam to Soundgarden – that defined the era and makes up the hit soundtrack. Flashback to the era of button-fly jeans, flannel shirts, turtleneck sweaters and denim jackets, and check out where the Singles cast is now.
