For a good while now, Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder has let his name to worthwhile causes. As an artist who’s been doing so for a good while, hearing that he’s at it again shouldn’t be shocking. As part of the Sub Pop Singles Club, Vedder has released a new single “Cartography” and he’s donating the funds to Fair Fight. The instrumental is a sweeping and encapsulating song that’s worth digging into.
The remix of the track above by Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Head Wound City) offers an ambient tone. While the original song is fairly expansive, Zinner adds some shimmer to the track delivering more chips in sound. The overall affect gives more than the original that was on the soundtrack for the documentary Return To Mount Kennedy. The haunting words of Robert Kennedy are found on the remix and add to the song’s mysterious tone.
The song can be heard on all streaming services or purchased in all digital outlets. The song is also available to purchase digitally from Sub Pop Records. The Sub Pop Singles Club subscription is available to purchase here. You can also donate to Fair Fight to help ensure an election that’s free and secure in November.
