Officially announced on Thursday, the Gigaton Visual Experience is all about presenting the album’s music and themes in a new, innovative way:
With this immersive audio experience, Pearl Jam fans will have the unique opportunity to hear the album in a completely different way. “I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and performances” explains Gigaton producer Josh Evans. “It’s truly a unique way to experience this album.”
As for the accessibility of this exciting endeavor, there’s this from the release:
This audiovisual album experience is only available as a limited time event on Apple TV 4K and on the Apple TV app in over 100 countries and regions for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac users. Their eleventh album, and first in nearly seven years, Gigaton has received acclaim as their greatest and most adventurous work to date.
*To experience the album in Dolby Atmos or Dolby Vision, viewers will need an Apple TV 4K (paired with a Dolby Atmos and/or Dolby Vision enabled device) or compatible iPhone, iPad, or MacBook device.
