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?
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.
Whilst it’s unlikely that Vedder as a solo artist will ever reach the dizzy heights of the 74,798,354 plays from 1,719,923 listeners afforded to Pearl Jam, first indications for “Longing to Belong” are good – and should improve when he hits the road on June 15.
