Pearl Jam Maestro EDDIE VEDDER Covers R.E.M. Hit ‘DRIVE’ For Sean Penn Film

24 August 2021

Inflammable actor/director Sean Penn orchestrated a new movie
called Flag Day, a crime drama. The film’s soundtrack features lots
of ’90s alt-rock.

Pearl Jam‘s maestro EDDIE VEDDER is part of it with a cover of the superb
R.E.M. hit DRIVE from their outstanding 1992 LP Automatic For The People.

Vedder‘s version resonates sonically almost identical to the original,
the only difference is that he, just like ichael Stipe, has a great voice.
