Eddie Vedder recently debuted his band Earthlings for his new solo album ‘Earthling’ at the Ohana Festival, featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer and Andrew Watt.
Chad Smith teased tour dates in a new Rolling Stone interview, “I work a lot with the producer/musician Andrew Watt. He’s amazing. We did a couple of songs for Ed, and then it turned out great and we just ended up doing a whole record, which is excellent. I’ve known him forever. We took Pearl Jam on that first tour in 1991 way back when, and you know, obviously he’s an amazing musician and so fun to connect with on a musical level. We’ve played together but we’ve never recorded or done any shows. It was really fun. Easy, fast. You didn’t hear it from me, but Ed’s talking about doing [more solo tour] dates.”
Last month, Eddie Vedder released a brand new solo-track “Long Way” from his forthcoming album Earthling.
For this record, Eddie Vedder worked with producer Andrew Watt in their first collaboration. The combination of Eddie Vedder’s vocals and Watt’s production come together to drive the emotional power behind the piece of work.
A limited-edition 7-inch vinyl which features “Long Way” & the soon-to-be released single, “The Haves”, is available for pre-order on PearlJam.com.
