Another track that is set to feature on a new compilation benefiting the organization Every Mother Counts has been uploaded and this time it's from the man with a new love for the uke, Eddie Vedder. The track, titled "Skipping" can be streamed over on Rolling Stone. The full release of Every Mother Counts is available exclusively at Starbucks throughout this month, May.
Other artists that feature on the compilation include Beck, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Rufus Wainwright, Patti Smith and U2 (Bono and Edge). Look out for it if you're grabbing a coffee.
Pearl Jam played a show over the weekend to celebrate their staying together for 20 years. Not only were the big PJ headlining but the likes of Queens of the Stoneage, The Strokes, Mudhoney and Temple of the Dog made appearances (reformed). It seems like this was the show to be at over the weekend and the guys over at CoS have found some of the best bits for us to enjoy. And boy is there a lot of them. Chris Cornell came on stage to help perform a cover of Mother Love Bone, Julian Casablancas put his vox to good use on "Not For You. Next up, Josh Homme front man of QOTSA came on stage to help on "In The Moonlight" and then Liam Finn, The Swell Season’s Glen Hansard, and Mudhoney’s Dan Peters joined the band for “Who You Are”. All in all night one of the PJ20 festival was a complete success wouldn't you say!?
As well as all of the above, Josh Homme helped Strokes put "New York City Cops" and then later Eddie Vedder joined QOTSA on stage for perform "Make It Wit Chu" and "Little Sister". So, without further ado, first video at the top is Temple of the Dog performing "Reach Down" with the rest of the footage labelled after the jump.

On Monday evening one man and his beloved Ukulele made the trip to the David Letterman show to put in a solid musical performance. Of course, I'm talking about Eddie Vedder, who is promoting his recently released Ukulele Songs. Check him out performing "Without You", the lead single from the LP up at the top. It seems like David and Eddie have a mutual respect for each other given the introduction and post performance comments from Letterman.
It would appear that Eddie Vedder likes to be beside water of some kind whilst playing his trusty uke. Check out his new video for the track "Can't Keep" which features on his new album Ukelele Songs. The video is a nice and relaxing Thursday morning watch. Check it out, and if you missed his previous water filled video for the track "Longing To Belong", head on over here.
We first got excited about this album a few months back when we got our first taste of Eddie Vedder's Ukelele Songs in the form of the track "Longing To Belong". Not to mention the lovely video he released to run alongside it not too long afterwards. Today though you can sit back, open a brew, put the kettle on, light a candle, I don't know, whatever you crazy kids do to relax, do it. Below, courtesy of NPR you can stream his solo album, Ukelele Songs.
The album is set for release on May 31st alongside a live solo DVD titled Water On The Road.
Take a look at the dreamy, tranquil, and calming video from Eddie Vedder for his track, "Longing To Belong". The video comprises of some shots of Eddie playing his trusty uke along with some shot of waves forming, crashing and Eddie looking into the sea. The mixture of Super 8 and HD footage makes for a pretty nice video to watch on a stress filled Thursday morning, and paired with Eddie's great song you'll be back for round two as soon as it finishes.
Eddie is set to release Ukelele Songs on May 31st, so mark your diaries to have an extra mellow few days that week, as if the tasters we've had are anything to go by. This will be a great sun setting album for Summer.
Check out the brand new jam from Eddie Vedder courtesy of the awesome guys at Antiquiet. We may not know when a Pearl Jam album is coming but they report that a new Eddie Vedder album is in the works and not only that it's a Uke based LP. This track titled, "Longing To Belong" is a quiet, sentimental track that see's Vedder being a little vulnerable in his lyricism. Check it out for yourselves below courtesy of Antiquiet.
