Pearl Jam leader Eddie Vedder has announced a new solo album. Earthling will be released via Seattle Surf/Republic, and it includes a new song called ‘Long Way’, which finds him working with Grammy-winning producer Andrew Watt for the first time. Listen to it below.
Last month, Vedder featured on the soundtrack to Sean Penn’s new film Flag Day, for which he collaborated with Glen Hansard on eight new songs, including a cover of R.E.M.’s ‘Drive’. He’s also set to appear on Elton John forthcoming album The Lockdown Sessions.
Last December, Vedder released an EP called Matter of Time. Earthling will mark his proper follow-up to 2011’s Ukulele Songs.
