EDDIE VEDDER, JOSH HOMME Collaborate On Benefit Song

According to The Pulse Of Radio, PEARL JAM singer Eddie Vedder, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE frontman Josh Homme and members of the STROKES have collaborated on a track that will be included in a benefit album for homeless youth. The song will appear on a three-CD compilation called "Live From Nowhere Near You, Vol II", which arrives on July 19. The package will feature unreleased, new and rare tracks from dozens of alternative musicians and bands. Among those are a cover of Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me", featuring Homme, Vedder, STROKES drummer Fabrizio Moretti and vocalist Julian Casablancas.

The song is not actually new, but was only available previously as the B-side to the rare STROKES single "You Only Live Once".

The set will also contain rare or previously unheard tunes from MODEST MOUSE, PEARL JAM guitarists Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, THE SHINS, WILCO's Jeff Tweedy and many more.

In keeping with the album's theme, much of the music was recorded in donated spaces, on the street, in alleyways and under bridges.

All profits from the album, which is available for $15 through Greyday Records, will be donated to Outside In, a non-profit organization in Portland, Oregon that provides aid and counseling to homeless youth.
