Eddie Vedder has released the trailer for an exclusive, intimate conversation between Vedder and Bruce Springsteen presented by Amazon Music. In the special, which was filmed on Bruce’s farm in New Jersey, the two break down Vedder’s new album, Earthling – from production and appearances by Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr, Elton John and Andrew Watt, to Vedder’s songwriting. Directed by Thom Zimny, the special will debut on Amazon Live tomorrow, Friday, February 11th beginning at 2PM EST and will be available exclusively for 48 hours. The interview will be made available on Eddie Vedder’s YouTube page beginning Sunday, February 13th.
Earthling is Vedder’s first album since 2011’s Ukulele Songs and his first solo tour in over a decade. Earthling illuminates every side of Vedder and includes collaborations with some of music’s most iconic legends, including Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr, and Elton John as well as Andrew Watt, Chad Smith, and Josh Klinghoffer. In the recent New York Times Magazine interview Eddie described it as: “the album is structured kind of like a concert: The special guests come out at the end. Stevie, then Elton, then we’ve got our “Mrs. Mills” song with Ringo. Then the last special guest was my father, whom I really didn’t get to know.”
