Mike McCready in "Free Ride" + CCFA Benefit 2014

Mike McCready and Brandi Carlile wrote and performed the song Free Ride, for the film of the same title, directed by Shana Betz and starring Anna Paquin. The track has been distributed as a limited edition 7-inch vinyl through the label owned by the guitarist - Hockeytalkter Records - and is available in the Shop at PearlJam.com (the B-side is an instrumental version of the track). The song also features Stone Gossard on guitar and Barrett Martin on drums.
Mike McCready will play with Flight to Mars, his UFO tribute band, at The Showbox in Seattle on May 16, 2014 for their 12th annual benefit concert. Proceeds from the show will benefit Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's Camp Oasis and The Jennifer Jaff Center (info). 

Matt Chamberlain is Soundgarden's new touring drummer

Soundgarden will release a deluxe version of Superunknown on June 3 and have recently announced who is going to replace Matt Cameron's for the band's next live commitments (South American dates, European dates and a summer U.S. tour with Nine Inch Nails): Matt Chamberlain, who Pearl Jam fans may remember for playing drums in the official video for Alive and for being Pearl Jam's touring drummer in the summer of 1991, after Dave Krusen left the band and before being replaced by Dave Abbruzzese. Good luck Matt!

Ten Club Annual Single 2013
Ten Club Analog members in Europe are currently receiving the 2013 Annual Vinyl Single & the new Deep Magazine issue. Both releases are also available for all members (Digital and Analog) in digital format at PearlJam.com under My Account > My Membership > Downloads. A-side features "99 problems" performed by Pearl Jam along with rapper Jay-Z at the Made In America Festival on September 2, 2012. The B-side is a funny cover of "Shattered" by the Rolling Stones played by Ed Vedder with actress Jeanne Tripplehorn on September 15, 2013 at a private benefit show in support of HealEB, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding a cure while raising awareness for Epidermolysis Bullosa. Ed and Jill Vedder are personally involved as founders and funders of Heal EB.
"Out Of The Furnace" movie score

The score of the movie "Out of the Furnace", released in the U.S. in December 2013, features a beautiful new version of Pearl Jam's classic "Release" re-recorded last year for the occasion:

Note: Eddie Vedder, in agreement with the film's director Scott Cooper, has decided to set aside a few songs he composed specifically for the soundtrack and judged by Cooper himself too personal to be included in the film (source). Only time will tell if these tracks will see the light in any official publication (perhaps a possible new solo album by Eddie?)...
