For the last 25 years, Pearl Jam fan club members have enjoyed free bonus material as a “holiday” gift from the band—some years, the exclusive single releases come later than others. This year, the band will release a live cover of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” featuring Beyoncé. The performance is from last year’s Global Citizen Festival. It will be available to members of the official Pearl Jam fan club, Ten Club.
Despite its high-profile status, the collaboration with Beyoncé is actually a B-side to a cover of Free’s “Wishing Well,” which Pearl Jam recorded in 1991. And it’s not the first time the band has entered Beyoncé’s world. In 2013, the band released a version of “99 Problems” with Bey’s husband Jay-Z.
