Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder is celebrating Joe Strummer’s 70th birthday with a cover of “Long Shadow.” The frontman said the following about that:

“I just think that what Joe did with the Mescaleros and those records, and those songs, and those words – it’s a very communal sound. The listener feels that they can just be part of that community.”

In other news, an unreleased Stummer song, titled “Fantastic,” has also been released. That track will appear on a new compilation, titled “Joe Strummer 002: The Mescaleros Years,” which will be available on September 16.
