Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has teamed with NASA for a video for his song “Invincible,” which features footage of the agency’s upcoming Artemis I Moon mission interspersed with a live performance of the song off Vedder’s recent solo album, Earthling. Artemis I will lift off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center for a crew-less mission to the moon in the coming months, and plans for the future include landing the first woman and first person of color on the lunar surface as part of a planned long-term human presence there.
Footage included in the video, produced by Sami Aziz and edited by Lacey Young, features pre-launch tests and renderings of the Orion spacecraft’s eventual orbit of the Moon and return to earth. You can check out the video for “Invincible” – here.
Pearl Jam will also be returning to the road in North America this spring as part of a rescheduled tour in support of its 2020 album Gigaton. The group is also working on its 12th studio album with producer Andrew Watt, who co-wrote and produced Earthling.
