Independent rock band Lullwater is taking Pearl Jam fans back in time with a video for its cover of Peal Jam’s classic song ‘Release.’
The original song was included in Pearl Jam’s debut 1991 record Ten. Lullwater’s take on the song was recorded at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, Washington. The video, which premiered via Loudwire, features the band performing with Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox) and Kevin Martin (Candlebox).
Lullwater front man John Strickland discussed the band’s take on the song in a recent interview, saying recording and performing the song is something special for him.
“The entire process of recording Pearl Jam’s ‘Release’ in London Bridge Studios was so surreal,” Strickland said. “Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands, and to cover that in one song in the same room as they did, was very emotional for me. I had no idea that a couple of years later we would be performing it live with Dave Krusen and Kevin Martin on the Candlebox tour; it’s such an odd and incredible feeling of living and experiencing the moments we’ve made because of ‘Release,’ It’s by far the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me as a musician. Thinking back to when I was in my adolescent years playing that song over and over and then one day to be performing it live with the original drummer, i simply crazy for me. ‘Release’ has a special place in my heart and is one of my favorite songs to play live.”
Lullwater’s next album Voodoo is expected to be released in Winter 2018. More information on that is available online now along with all of Lullwater’s latest news and more at:
