If you have doubts about Pearl Jam's new release BackSpacer, check out this stream of "Just Breathe" from the upcoming Austin City Limits broadcast.

This performance of "Just Breathe" reminds us of seeing Eddie perform solo last summer. Breathtakingly beautiful.

BackSpacer is -- simply -- a great release.

Take a preview spin Pearl Jam's Back Spacer.

I also saw Ed solo last spring in Santa Cruz, where he premiered a song he'd written that day called "Santa Cruz", which includes a prominent Neil Young reference.

This is part of a post I made at the Red Mosquito board after the show:

I'm not one to draw too much meaning out of things like this, but I really felt like my whole weekend, and everything in the past few weeks that led to my being able to be there for this show, all centered around this song.

A lot of things had to fall into place just right for me to even be able to be in Santa Cruz yesterday, and they fell into place brilliantly ... saw one of my best old friends from college (who reminded me that I hadn't seen since my wedding in 2002) ... Also, as we learned last night, the only reason Ed was even playing Santa Cruz was because the promoter couldn't line up a venue in Portland, so while others may have joked that it made Santa Cruz feel like an afterthought, it made it all that more special for me, because I couldn't have gone to a show in Portland.

But back to the song, it was a new, original song, which is special enough on its own, and I especially love hearing a song performed live when NOBODY in the audience is familiar with it. I've always considered premieres to be very special. But it was almost the story of my trip to Santa Cruz, as much as it was Eddie's. There were references to Neil Young, listening to Neil driving into town, knowing he was near Neil's home, references to seeing an old friend, and that they both were now older and had kids, but when they saw each other, they were 17 again, and the return to a city that always makes you think, "Why the hell don't I live here?" I'm not ashamed to say I teared up in the moment.

So to everyone I met, however briefly, thank you. I felt like that was exactly where I was supposed to be.


Anyway, here's the song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xuxsr1eko0

Heading South a compass reads
Look at our speed, we're going sixty-three
Look out the window as the trees go green
I look at them and they look at me

Got Neil Young on the stereo
He comes along whenever i go
Something different as i hear him now
Heading south on a familiar route (Oh yeah)

I can feel them lifting up my blues
I can see a white horizon, new
Got the feeling i just cant lose
Rolling into Santa Cruz (yeah)

I've got an old friend he remembers me
From way back when we were seventeen
We got kids and we're older now
But when i see him, we're still seventeen

I need the beach to set me free
I need the wind to make me breathe
I need the water to wash my soul
I need my love once to let me go

I can feel them lifting up my blues
I can see a white horizon blue
Got the feeling that i just cant lose
Rolling into Santa Cruz (Ah yeah)

(Ah ha)

Up in the North West, we got it good
Little soggy, but we've got it good
Can't help thinking that I wish i would
Move my ass down to Santa Cruz

I got the feeling that i just can't lose
Pulling into Santa Cruz
I got a feeling that i just can't lose
Pulling into Santa Cruz (Oh)

I got a feeling i don't want to lose
Pulling into Cruz
I got a feeling i just can't lose
Pulling into Santa Cruz (Yeah)

(Yeah, yeah, ah, ah, nah nah)
