A worldwide treasure hunt by grunge rockers Pearl Jam leading up to the release of their new album included a prize hidden in Auckland.

The album, the soundtrack to their upcoming documentary Pearl Jam Twenty, includes 29 live tracks recorded during shows around the world and is being released on September 20.

The band hid the album's song titles on posters in cities where each of the tracks was recorded and used clues to reveal them online as they were found by fans.

Track six on the album, Blood, was recorded during an Auckland concert and the song title was found at The Fiddler bar in Auckland this afternoon by a fan called Chris Barry.

It took him about an hour to find the poster after the clue - "A fiddler plays across the street from this Auckland skyscraper" - was posted online.

Other tracks titles already revealed included Release recorded in Italy, Alive in Seattle, Garden in Zurich and Why Go in Hamburg, Germany.

More details about the album are available here.
