Fresh on the heels of the news surrounding the deluxe reissues of Pearl Jam’s seminal ‘90s albums “Vs.” and “Vitalogy,” grunge icon and frontman Eddie Vedder is giving music fans another reason to rejoice this spring.
According to a recent post on Pearl Jam’s official website, Vedder plans to release his second solo album “Ukulele Songs” through Pearl Jam’s very own Monkeywrench record label on May 31.
This new collection, coming almost four years after Vedder’s acclaimed solo work on the soundtrack to the film “Into the Wild,” will contain a variety of cover songs and original compositions performed entirely by Vedder on the popular Hawaiian instrument. Also, accompanying the release will be a live DVD featuring performances from Vedder’s 2008 solo tour.
And if all these riches weren’t enough, Vedder will be hitting the road again this summer with upcoming concerts already scheduled in Providence, Boston, and Hartford.
Catch him if you can. The base range for ticket prices starts at $150 per pair.
