Pearl Jam covering Who, Young on fan club single

Pearl Jam’s annual holiday single for members of its Ten Club fan organization will feature a pair of classic rock covers: the Who’s “Love Reign O’er Me” and
Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.”

The Who cover appears in the Adam Sandler/Don Cheadle film
“Reign Over Me,” which opens March 9 in North American theaters. The Young track was recorded at the Make Poverty
History concert in Melbourne, Australia, last November with
U2’s Bono and the Edge guesting.

According to a post on Pearl Jam’s Web site
(http://www.pearljam.com), the fan club single will hit mailboxes “sometime in February.” Meanwhile, Pearl Jam is rumored to returning to the road this summer, but no details have yet been announced.
