Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder to Contribute Song to Christian Bale Film ‘Out of the Furnace’

Samir Hussein, Getty Images While we wait on new Pearl Jam music, frontman Eddie Vedder has found another creative outlet through the big screen. The vocalist, who has contributed music both as a solo artist and with his band to a number of films, is reportedly working on a song for the upcoming Christian Bale film ‘Out of the Furnace.’ The  Los Angeles Times reports that Vedder is writing and recording the solo track for the movie that’s expected to arrive in theaters later this year. The paper cited a source close to the production as stating that it’s likely a number of other Vedder tracks may also be used for the movie. The film, which stars Bale, Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck, centers on two brothers from a working class Pennsylvania town that get caught up in a web of violent crimes. Vedder’s songs have been featured in the movies ‘Dead Man Walking’ and ‘Eat Pray Love,’ while the singer recorded an entire soundtrack for the film ‘Into the Wild.’ Earlier this year, Vedder stated that Pearl Jam were “halfway” toward finishing their next album, but the band’s members have repeatedly stated that they’re taking their time on the disc and enjoying a break until everyone feels ready to resume work. Regardless of the album progress, the band has begun lining up some new shows for this summer, including a date at Chicago’s Wrigley Field .

Descriptively dubbed ‘The Eddie Vedder Radio Show,’ Vedder’s new program will air on SiriusXM’s Pearl Jam Radio channel, and is being presented in what the network is calling a “limited run.” According to a press release, episodes will find Vedder spinning “many of his all-time favorite songs, from early punk rock influences to unreleased material from his personal archives.” “Eddie has been the voice of a generation and a voice with a conscience and we are happy to have him take up residence here to do his own show,” said SiriusXM president and COO in a prepared announcement. “Eddie’s record collection could tell some stories all by itself, let alone with Eddie at the helm; we know our listeners will enjoy hearing this one.” The report comes amid a flurry of Pearl Jam news, including word that the band is deep into preparations for its next album, the follow-up to 2009′s ‘Backspacer’ although according to bassist Jeff Ament , there aren’t any concrete plans for 2013. While they take their time working on new material, it’s nice to know Vedder will be using his spare time to keep entertaining the fans.
