AUDIO: Pearl Jam – Again Today (Brandi Carlile cover)

American rock legends Pearl Jam have released a cover of Brandi Carlile’s ‘Again Today’, as part of the 10th anniversary of the release of her album, ‘The Story’.

Check out a stream of it below:

The song is part of a collection of covers of Carlile’s songs, recorded by a host of famous musicians and set to be released on May 5th. The profits of the album will go to the charity War Child, which aims to provide aid to the children who have been afflicted by war.

The short, less than 3-minute song opens with an authentic drum beat, followed by a grungy but jovial guitar line. It is dotted with vocal harmonies and suitable, thought-provoking lyrics.

This release also follows the news that Pearl Jam have been inducted in the Rock Hall of Fame – a suitable position for the band, with a successful career spanning decades.
