Pearl Jam has begun to share their collection of holiday-inspired recordings onto streaming platforms like Apple Music and Spotify.
Announced by the band on Monday, “12 Days of Pearl Jam” will see the veteran rock band upload their holiday recordings to streaming services for the first time ever, and began their seasonal initiative by sharing their 2004 cover of a Stevie Wonder classic.
The “12 Days of Pearl Jam” will see the band release a different song from their holiday discography every day over the next week and a half. To start the initiative on Monday, the band shared their cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Someday at Christmas”, which was initially released as the A-side of a 7″ single back on New Year’s Eve 2004. Tuesday’s release is their cover of The Sonics‘ “Don’t Believe in Christmas”, which initially arrived back on New Year’s Eve 2002.
As Spin notes, Pearl Jam has been sharing holiday recordings like “Someday at Christmas” for members of their fan club since 1991.
