Pearl Jam’s Ten Club Gets This Year’s Xmas Gift Early

Pearl Jam likes to give their most loyal fans something for Christmas each year in the form of a 7-inch single. Their biggest Top 40 hit, “Last Kiss,” started out as a fan club single.

This year, Ten Club members will get Eddie’s version of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” which was recorded during a concert in Meco, Portugal, on July 18.  Details on the release can be found here.

If you’re not a member, you’ll be able to buy the digital version of the track on iTunes as of Tuesday. Proceeds will go to an organization that encourages cooperation between Israeli and Palestinian youth.

Meanwhile, here’s some shaky video of the performance.
