Reportedly, the new album is due out May 29th, and the band will also be releasing a previously unheard song entitled, “Mother” for a charity compilation put out by Starbucks and model Christy Turlington. The compilation will also include artists such as Eddie Vedder, David Bowie, Paul Simon, Patti Smith, Beck and a bunch of other big names I don’t care too much about. Ha.
Rumored in fan circles for weeks, it’s now official: Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s new solo album, “Ukulele Songs,” will arrive on May 31 in tandem with a live solo DVD titled “Water On The Road.”
Featuring a number of songs that Vedder penned and first played live — but never released — nearly a decade ago, “Ukulele Songs” also includes a uke version of Pearl Jam’s 2002 track “Can’t Keep” and guest vocalists on two tracks: Glen Hansard on the Everly Brothers cover “Sleepless Nights” and Cat Power on “Tonight You Belong To Me.” The album’s lead single, “Longing To Belong,” a Vedder original, is available digitally today (March 21).
