Pearl Jam have released a new song, “Crown of Thorns,” from the soundtrack to their upcoming Cameron Crowe-directed documentary, Pearl Jam Twenty. “Crown of Thorns” is a cover of a song written by Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and guitarist Stone Gossard’s previous band Mother Love Bone, who disbanded in 1990 after singer Andrew Wood’s tragic death. The version of the song that appears in the film was recorded live on October 22, 2000 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas; check it out below.
Pearl Jam Twenty opens in theaters on September 20. Watch the official trailer here.
