Grunge icon Eddie Vedder will pen a track for the upcoming feature film ‘Out of the Furnace’
Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is using his songwriting expertise to pen a track for an upcoming feature film. According to the Los Angeles Times, the singer — who formerly has written songs for several movies, including “Eat Pray Love,” “Dead Man Walking” and “Into the Wild” — has been tapped to craft a solo song for the new flick, “Out of the Furnace.”
Vedder may do more than contribute one song to the soundtrack, to boot. On top of the new track, the Los Angeles Times says a source tied into the production believes that a collection of “previously recorded Vedder songs” will become a part of the new movie. Will this delay recording sessions for Pearl Jam’s much-anticipated new album? Time will only tell.
“Out of the Furnace” includes a star-studded cast of Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck. The film is a dark thriller about “two brothers in a down-and-out Pennsylvania town who get caught up in the web of violent crime,” according to an official statement from producers. Look for the flick to hit theaters this year.
In Pearl Jam news, the band recently announced they will be playing two big gigs this summer: July 19 at Wrigley, home to the Chicago Cubs, and July 16 at Canada’s Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario.
