(hennemusic) Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament is streaming a video for "Safe In The Car", the lead single from his forthcoming solo album, "Heaven/Hell." Due May 10, "Heaven/Hell" marks the bassist's third solo release, following 2008's "Tone" and 2012's "While My Heart Beats."

The tune featured vocals by St. Louis, MO singer/songwriter Angel Olsen and appearances by Ament's bandmates Mike McCready and Matt Cameron. The clip was directed by Ament, who revealed the inspiration for the footage, which was filmed entirely inside a car with the rocker behind the wheel.

"I was seeing Cormac McCarthy's The Road - you're driving to the coast and you're trying to get away from the nuclear winter and you have your dogs in the car and you're just trying to escape this horrible apocalypse that just happened," Ament tells Rolling Stone. "[The directors] asked me what I wanted [the video] to look like and the first thing that came to mind was grindhouse. I always loved the super high-contrast, dark look of that. It's the world coming to an end and trying to have a sense of humor about it." here.
