Frontman Eddie Vedder discusses his songwriting process, saying that it's like "capturing lightning in a bottle... [the songs] were easy to write, lucky for me they were evocative of something right away." He has a way with words. Backspacer will be released in the US on September 20. The video can be viewed here.
