Eddie Vedder recently shared a music video for his cover of Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros‘ 2003 song “Long Shadow.”
The video, produced and directed by Lance Bangs, is available to watch on YouTube.
Vedder’s cover of “Long Shadow” marks a celebration of Strummer’s 70th birthday.
“Long Shadow” is a song from the album Streetcore. The record was released nearly a year after Strummer’s death. The British musician and Clash founder died in December 2002.
In the live performance video, the Pearl Jam lead singer plays the song in front of a raging fire.
“I just think that what Joe did with the Mescaleros and those records, and those songs, and those words – it’s a very communal sound,” Vedder says at the end of the video.
He adds, “The listener feels that they can just be part of that community. I can only imagine that he facilitated thousands and thousands of connections.”
