Eddie Vedder’s new single will go to people who buy tickets to see his beloved Chicago Cubs

One ticket equals one 7-inch single featuring the song “All The Way,” the Cubs anthem he wrote in 2007. Not only does he often show up to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” every once in a while, but he helps the team sell tickets. See? (Via Fansided) The Chicago Cubs have no greater friend and fan than Eddie Vedder. Third Man Records is in charge of the production. The B-side will feature a classic Cubs song called “Go Cubs Go.” And because the game is so close to July 4, it will be released on red and blue vinyl. Here’s what the A-side sounds like. For his next trick, Eddie will release a new single next month and will be available only to people who go to the Cubs-Red game on July 6.

New book that collects Canadian album information and artwork in one place launches Indiegogo campaign

New book that collects Canadian album information and artwork in one place launches Indiegogo campaign

It’s like going to the record store without going to the record store! Over the last few years, he’s been working on a labour of love: a book highlighting album artwork and information from hundreds of Canadian albums over the years. I’ve watched this book come together from the beginning and Mike’s done a great job. And if you know of anyone who would like to partner on this project (a publisher, a sponsor, etc.) let me know and I’ll pass the information onto Mike. Mike Carr is an insanely big fan of Canadian music. Once it’s published, it’ll be an invaluable resource to collectors and anyone into Canadian music. This issue contains over 900 musical acts and over 3000 album covers from Canada’s famous and not so famous musicians. For reasons beyond my comprehension, no Canadian publisher wants to help Mike out, so he’s going the Indiegogo route so he can self-publish. If you can, throw a couple of bucks Mike’s way. Called Rock My World Canada, Mike describes the book this way:
The series is designed as a compilation of the history of each musician or band as shown by the studio album releases and a short biography.
