Seattle rockers Pearl Jam are reportedly set to unveil their new single "Mind Your Manners" on July 16. According to Grunge Report, the track release was initially confirmed on AllAccess.Com, but got removed afterwards, so although the situation is still uncertain, it seems like something is definitely cooking up in among the Pearl Jam ranks.

The track will mark the band's first fresh release since 2011's "Ole" and is likely to find its spot on the upcoming yet-untitled record.

According to recent statements from guitarist Mike McCready, the follow-up to 2009's "Backspacer" will be "way better" than its predecessor and should most definitely hit the shelves by early 2014.

In the words of guitarist Stone Gossard, the new album is "almost done" and should deliver more signature Pearl Jam sound.

"It's almost done and as far as what it sounds like, it sounds like Pearl Jam," Gossard told Guerrilla Candy. "You're going to hear some rock songs and you're going to hear some quiet songs and you'll hear some songs in between. That's all I can really say about it because we aren't talking about it yet so it doesn't make much sense for me to say anything."

As the ninth record in the Pearl Jam opus, "Backspacer" dropped back in September 2009, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart as the band's first chart-topper since 1996's "No Code."

    there was a line where this should have stopped. you have clearly crossed it. its cool though, i remember being let on the internet for the first time too.
    I've heard a lot of promising things about this new album, so I'm psyched for this!
    Most anticipated release this year! Honestly. after hearing what AIC put out, my expectations are WAY high!
    I have to say, I honestly think TDPDH is the best release of the year so far. It'll be difficult for any band to top it.
    Absolutely agree. I'm a HUGE PJ fan, always have been. I have very high hopes. As far as TDPDH, I haven't stopped listening to it!!
