After After our friends in Chicago gave us a first listen to Eddie Vedder‘s new material, he’s announced plans for a solo tour of the US this summer in support of album Ukulele Songs. A departure from his rock roots into sparse instrumentation, how will it go down with fans?

Last.fm Trends is looking at his scrobbles as a solo artist and as part of Pearl Jam, to see how his new tracks could do.

His solo top tracks all originate from his 2007 soundtrack to Into The Wild, with “Society” a firm fan favorite counting 1,542,850 scrobbles from 207,305 listeners over all time. The shoutbox for the track is still getting love over three years after its release, and appears testament to the loyalty fans have to Vedder.
