Seattle alt-rock heroes Pearl Jam have released a holiday 2013 single, featuring a cover of Jay-Z’s 99 Problems (featuring the rapper himself). The single’s b-side is a cover of The Rolling Stones’ 1978 hit Shattered by actress Jeanne Tripplehorn and the band’s frontman Eddie Vedder. Both recordings are taken from previous live performances, one at Made In America festival and the other at a private benefit concert.
Pearl Jam fan site Pearl Jam Online.it took to their Facebook page to announce the single, and also released images of what appears to be the vinyl LP cover art, which you can check out down below. The 7″ isingle has been posted out to members of Pearl Jam’s ‘Ten Club’ according to Radio.com.
