Watch: Eddie Vedder – “Longing to Belong”


Have your daydreams ever felt like they were shot on Super 8mm film? There’s something dreamy to the grainy quality it exudes. Probably because most of the footage run through it is usually decades old. Not the case here. On Eddie Vedder‘s new video for “Longing to Belong”, the short clip splices together high-definition shots with an assortment of Super 8 footage, all showcasing the Pearl Jam frontman alone with a ukulele and the natural wonders of Hawaii. For some, it’s a nice, tranquil moment. For die-hard surfers, it’s where they’ll go after death. Whatever category you fall into, you’re in for a pleasant three minutes.

You can check out the clip above. If you dig this, then you might enjoy Vedder’s forthcoming solo effort, Ukulele Songs, which drops May 31st. To support the album, Vedder will be hitting the road, and we’ve provided the dates below, too. Aren’t we so nice? Meh, blame it on the peaceful video.
