Pearl Jam To Release Single With Beyonce, Cover the Doobie Brothers in NYC
Pearl Jam will reportedly release Eddie Vedder's collaboration with Beyonce from the Global Citizen Festival as an exclusive single for members of their fan club.
The duo performed a cover of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" to close out the festival in New York's Central Park last September and PearlJamOnline has revealed that it will be released as the 2015 installment of the Ten Club Holiday Single. (Pearl Jam used to release the annual single around Christmas, but they've started dropping the "holiday single" as late as June or September.)
As PearlJamOnline points out, the 2015 installment is centered around “Redemption Song”, the crowd-pleasing, collaborative Bob Marley cover performed by Eddie Vedder and Queen Bey at last year’s Global Citizen Festival. The single also comes with Pearl Jam’s previously unreleased rendition of Free’s “Wishing Well”, which they’d recorded back in 1991.
During their concert last night at New York's Madison Square Garden, they covered the Doobie Brothers classic "Takin' It to the Streets." They played the song with help from crowd before transitioning into their Vitalogy track "Whipping." Check out video below.
