Chicago Cubs fans buying tickets for the team's July 6th game at Wrigley Field against the Cincinnati Reds will get a special bonus with their seats: a seven-inch vinyl single from Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder. The A-side of the single, released through Jack White's Third Man Records, will feature "All the Way," which Illinois native Vedder wrote about the Cubs, while the B-side will have a 1984 performance of Steve Goodman’s Cubs anthem "Go, Cubs, Go."

  • Vedder is a longtime, diehard Cubs fan who appeared with players Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo in an Major League Baseball commercial last year while performing a new jingle.
  • Vedder's single will be the second baseball-related release from Third Man, which issued a single for White’s hometown Detroit Tigers last year.
  • Pearl Jam has been writing its 11th studio LP and is heading out on European and North American tour dates this spring and summer.
