Pearl Jam Go Quadrophenic

Pearl Jam have recorded a cover version of The Who's Quadrophenia rock-opera closing song "Love, Reign O'er Me" for a new movie soundtrack.

The Seattle rock band fronted by Eddie Vedder have recorded the song especially for forthcoming movie "Reign Over Me", starring Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle and also featuring appearances by Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland.

The song, originally written by Pete Townshend for their rock-opera in 1979, concerns the character of Jimmy, who whilst having a personal crisis, steals a boat to go to a small island.

The Pearl Jam version of the song is available for download through iTunes.
