Eddie Vedder just announced he will be releasing his second solo album entitled Ukulele Songs and a live concert DVD Water on the Road. The record self-explanatorily includes Vedder jamming on a ukulele, performing original songs and covers. Collaborative guests include Cat Power’s Chan Marshall, Glen Hansard of the Frames and the Swell Season. A new uke’d over recording of Pearl Jams’ song “Can’t Keep” is also featured on the album. Water on the Road, Vedder’s first solo concert film, was directed by Brendan Canty of Fugazi and Christoph Green at a pair of shows in Washington, D.C. in August of 2008. That set will include several songs from Vedder’s soundtrack for the film Into the Wild along with early versions of Ukulele Songs tracks, covers and relatively obscure Pearl Jam numbers such as “Sometimes,” “Driftin'” and “Around the Bend.” The first single from the album, “Longing to Belong,” is now available for digital download. Check out the single and more info on the album on Pearl Jam’s website at the link above.
