Eddie Vedder Debuts Song In The Bear Season 3


Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam has unveiled a previously unreleased rendition of The English Beat’s 1982 hit “Save It for Later,” featured in the second episode of FX’s The Bear, season 3. This version, teased in the show’s trailer, marks Vedder’s contribution to the series, which has previously used Pearl Jam tracks like “Animal” and a live rendition of “Come Back” in earlier seasons.

Details about this new recording of “Save It for Later,” including the saxophone soloist, have not been fully disclosed. Pearl Jam has incorporated elements of the song into their performances of “Better Man” since 1996, and the new rendition concludes with Vedder briefly singing “can’t find a better man.”

Vedder shared an image on Instagram of what appears to be a 7-inch vinyl single of “Save It for Later,” credited to his Seattle Surf Co. label. However, it’s uncertain if this release will be commercially available in that format or remain exclusive to streaming services for now.

The Bear Season 3 has R.E.M. and Eddie Vedder

The Bear’s executive producers, Josh Senior and Christopher Storer, known for their admiration of ’90s music, integrated a rare remix of R.E.M.’s 1994 song “Strange Currencies” into the show’s second season, alongside multiple needle-drops of the track throughout episodes. The new season’s debut episode featured musical contributions from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, revealed only during the closing credits.

Meanwhile, Pearl Jam has recently embarked on the European leg of their global tour in support of their latest album, Dark Matter. Their upcoming performance at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 29 kicks off their European tour, with the North American leg set to resume on August 22 in Missoula, Montana.
