Eddie Vedder Shares Cover Of Joe Strummers Long Shadow

Eddie Vedder recently shared a music video for his cover of Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros‘ 2003 song “Long Shadow.”

The video, produced and directed by Lance Bangs, is available to watch on YouTube.

Vedder’s cover of “Long Shadow” marks a celebration of Strummer’s 70th birthday.

“Long Shadow” is a song from the album Streetcore. The record was released nearly a year after Strummer’s death. The British musician and Clash founder died in December 2002.

In the live performance video, the Pearl Jam lead singer plays the song in front of a raging fire.

“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,” Vedder says at the end of the video.

He adds, “The listener feels that they can just be part of that community. I can only imagine that he facilitated thousands and thousands of connections.”
