Pearl Jam has just released the full version of their protest song 'Can't Deny Me', which is actually their first piece of new original music since the LP 'Lightning Bolt' back in 2013.
Eddie Vedder belts out the following lyrics during the track: 'The higher, the farther, the faster you fly / You may be rich but you can't deny me / Got nothing, got nothing but the will to survive / You can't control and you can't deny me."
In what appears to be a direct reference to Donald Trump and his administration, the lyrics also include: "Watch as the roots take hold / the country you are representing / critical condition."
It's unclear if the song is from a new album, or if it's the annual installment in Pearl Jam's "Holiday Singles" series.
As we wrote about before, the song first premiered on Sirius XM's Pearl Jam Radio.
The track, from Cameron Crowe's Singles, has never been released commercially and was not included on the movie's official soundtrack.Read More
