Robert Plant and Pearl Jam Releasing Collaboration

January 28th, 2006

Back in 1981 Robert Plant released his first post-Zeppelin recording, a version of Elvis’ Little Sister with Dave Edmunds and Rockpile, recorded at the 1979 concert to benefit the people of Kampuchea. Now comes news that he is again collaborating on Little Sister, this time with Pearl Jam. From Reuters:

NEW YORK (Billboard) – As Pearl Jam nears completion on its new studio album, the group has finalized the track list for its upcoming holiday single, sent annually to members of its Ten Club fan organization.

This year’s single will feature a live cover of the Elvis Presley-popularized “Little Sister” with Robert Plant, taped last October in Chicago, as well as demo of the new song “Gone,” which was debuted that same month during a show in Atlantic City, N.J.

Before the band gets busy with promotion and touring, guitarist Mike McCready will stage a March 18 benefit for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation at Seattle’s Showbox. McCready will play with his UFO tribute band, Flight To Mars, on a bill that also features the Supersuckers and Lee Rude and the Trainwrecks.
