Pearl Jam Guitarist Teams Up With Singer For Tom Petty Cover

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready & singer-songwriter KT Tunstall have teamed up on a cover of the late Tom Petty’s classic hit, “I Won’t Back Down.” McCready produced the track and also plays guitar on it. An accompanying, more politically charged music video has been assembled from footage submitted by fans of marches and gatherings in support of various causes.

McCready and Tunstall chose the track to honor Petty as well as show their support for “all the people all over the world marching, protesting and standing up for justice and equality,” according to a message that appears at the beginning of the video.

Proceeds from sales of the track will go to Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation, which was founded by Pearl Jam in 2006 to aid efforts towards community health, the environment, arts and education and social change.
