Pearl Jam are the latest band to embrace the digital age - they're making their new single exclusively available on the internet.

The official Pearl Jam site will begin accepting pre-orders for MAN OF THE HOUR - featured on the soundtrack to Tim Burton's new movie BIG FISH - on 10 November (03).

The download will include the full movie track and a demo version of the song by frontman Eddie Vedder.

Record buyers will have to wait until the 26 November to purchase the single, as well as the film soundtrack in its entirety, in music stores.

The album - with compositions by Danny Elfman and songs by Bing Crosby, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley among others - hits shops two weeks prior to the worldwide premiere of Big Fish, which stars Ewan McGregor and Helena Bonham CARTER.
