    I would quite like a new EV solo album (like Into the Wild!). He can then tour that in 2023 when the Gigaton tour has been completed. He has loads of songs he could put on there 
    He‘s working on an album with Glen Hansard. I read it’s a soundtrack for a Sean Penn movie again.

    In my opinion, Gigaton is mostly a forgotten record already...and it will continue to fade from conciousness as there won't be live shows or any promotion for atleast another year. 

    When being performed live can you imagine anyone getting excited for superblood wolfmoon, buckle up, never destination, etc?  I just think the songs will be met with indifference and a formality to get to the mainstays. Maybe I just wanted more than a couple good songs after seven years.

    If touring is not to resume until fall 2021 or the following year, I hope they convene and put another album together. Even if they sit on it, it would be great to have one in the can ready to go.

    the general consensus i've seen is that is a great record; their best in years.

    I'd be happy with a 4-5 song EP.

    I mean, lets let them play the songs live first before we decide no one wants to hear them anymore.

    Dont think it would be wise to release another album until they can actually go out on the road with it. The cycle for Gigaton is far from done.
    This is my take, as Gigaton is their best album in a long time and I hope they take advantage of it and show that to more people.

    That being said, I hope they to get a ton of songs coming down the pipe so that they can surprise release another one mid-tour without much hassle. If it wasn't obvious during the last gap, because of the new priorities that come with their age and time-consuming endeavors outside of PJ, it's harder than ever for them to make a new record in normal times. For that reason, I hope as a fan that they take advantage of these unprecedented times!

    Demos of those songs?

    Crazy idea alert: They could use their mixing boards, speed things up a bit, do re-recording as necessary and add crowd noise to give us a tease of what they'd sound like live.

    Based on "Can't Deny Me" and that album being teased, they definitely have more stuff in the can. If they're like other bands, they probably keep ideas and riffs for years, possibly even decades. Look at "Hard To Imagine" as an example.

    Music is like a relationship with someone. The way it starts and evolves is entirely dependent upon time. Too early to tell if you are in love or in like, etc. Give it a few. Like a relationship if you move too quickly, there is a chance that you will never fully understand or appreciate what you have/had. Fan since 91 and married 30 years. I assure you it is worth hanging around to see what evolves.

    'Get It Back' was originally intended for their next album, but Matt insisted it be released earlier.  With the in-house studio at their headquarters, plus the working methods they developed making Gigaton, it is highly plausible they can create under these unique set of circumstances.  Some of the guys already got together in pairs to make music.  

    There is also the possibility of finishing songs held over from a couple years back, if they felt so inclined.  Here is an excerpt from a Spin magazine article last year.

    "Though 12 songs ultimately comprise Gigaton, there were a bunch of other tunes, though, at different stages, that weren’t completed during the sessions."

    But who knows.  After all, this is the same band that thought they were just writing and demoing for over two years until they realized, about a month before it was finished, they had been recording the material that comprises Gigaton all along!

    I heard this on the Strombo Apple Music radio interview with Stone Gossard back in October.  Stone discusses the song right after it is played on the show at about the 2h 37m mark.

    nothing more of  a money grab than releasing a deluxe version of something you just released.

    Quick Escape is too good to can because of the Trump reference.  The song is going to be a killer live.  An easy fix would be to change the lyric to "to find a place that hadn't been fucked up yet"...  Personally, I wish that was the lyric anyway.  

    Or "a place we hadn't fucked up yet", that's more accurate anyway. Trump isn't the root of all of our problems, the problems won't go away just because he's out of office. We all need to accept the responsibility and not just blame the other side.

    Honestly, i've been singing "we" this whole time. i never heard the word trump there before. i thought ed was saying we. i agree 100%. the world was FUBAR way before trump was anywhere near washington. 

    but honestly, this isn't bushleaguer. if ed wants to leave it as is, that's one minor mention in one song. no biggie to me.

    You would need a sound recorder app, like Audacity. Can't seem to find this recording outside of Apple Music.

    He has this https://www.cbc.ca/listen/live-radio/1-241-the-strombo-show ..Wish it was available there.
