Post #190: Eddie Vedder - "Longing to Belong" and "Rise"

Post #190:  Today, Eddie Vedder will be releasing his 2nd solo album entitled Ukulele Songs, which will include the single "Longing to Belong".

Click HERE for a link to an online coupon which will allow you to get the album at Best Buy for $7.99.

This comes almost 4 years after his first solo release, which was actually the soundtrack for the movie Into the Wild.

"Rise" is from this soundtrack, and if you haven't seen this movie, I recommend you do.  It is based on the true story of Christopher McCandless, whom after graduating from college, gives away his money, and leaves his possessions behind, hitchhiking to Alaska to live in the wildnerness.

The title of the new album is fitting as the ukulele tends to be an instrument of choice for Eddie, which is evident in both of these songs.

He has some great solo work, but thankfully he hasn't put an end to his day job fronting Pearl Jam.
