Merry Christmas, Your 2015 Fan Club Single Has Arrived!

Pearl Jam's 2015 Fan Club Single has started to arrive in mailboxes along with a copy of Deep magazine.  The picture above is from the B side.  It's Ed and Beyonce covering Bob Marley's Redemption Song at last year's Global Citizen Festival.

The B side, which we have not seen yet contains a Free cover, Wishing Well, recorded during the Ten era and previously leaked on this early version of Lost Dogs.

Eddie Vedder Joins the Cast of Showtime's Twin Peaks

It was announced today that Eddie Vedder will be appearing with several other musicians as a cast member in Showtime's Twin Peaks series, due out in 2017.  David Lynch apparently pulled in friends like Eddie and Trent Reznor for parts in the series.  The annoucement was made as a 200-name cast list posted on the series' Facebook page.

Rolling Stone dug through the list for you:
The asterisk next to names on the cast list denotes actors and actresses who either appeared on the original Twin Peaks series – like Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, M├Ądchen Amick, Ray Wise and David Duchovny, to mention a few – or its theatrical film Fire Walk With Me, like Harry Dean Stanton and Lynch himself. Even "Log Lady" actress Catherine Coulson, who died in September, is among the Twin Peaks returnees.

Also joining the cast is Michael Cera, Monica Bellucci, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jim Belushi, Tim Roth, Robert Forster, Ashley Judd, Amanda Seyfried and Lynch vets Laura Dern, Balthazar Getty and Naomi Watts.

Levee Walkers, Featuring Jaz Coleman

HockeyTalkter Records has just released a 7" single by Levee Walkers, a collaboration between Mike McCready Duff McKagan (Guns 'N Roses), Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees/Mad Season) and Jaz Coleman (Killing Joke).  The single includes two songs, titled Freedom Song and Songs for the West.

You can read Barrett's story about how the songs came together and what, exactly, a levee walker is at HockeyTalkter.  Not to mention, you can purchase the single on black vinyl ($10) or clear vinyl ($20).  

Here's hoping there is more to come from Levee Walkers.

Batman by Harper and Eddie Vedder

Eddie Vedder, today, posted a new tune of his rarely used Soundcloud channel.  It is a cover of the Batman Theme by him and his daughter.  I don't know that it will make Album #11, but it might end up on your 2015 Fan Club Single.

Yes, Pearl Jam, we're still waiting on our Fan Club Single.  Cancelling shows is not going to make us forget!
