    Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder's new solo album Ukulele Songs is due out May 31st. It will be released alongside a live solo DVD titled Water on the Road. Rumors of an EV solo album were running rampant for weeks and now it is officially confirmed, so says Billboard.

    Ukulele Songs includes songs that the Pearl Jam singer wrote and first played live nearly a decade ago; he never released any of the tunes, btw. Ukulele Songs also includes a uke version of Pearl Jam's 2002 track "Can't Keep" and guest vocalists on two tracks: Glen Hansard on The Everly Brothers cover "Sleepless Nights" and Cat Power on "Tonight You Belong To Me." The album's lead single, "Longing To Belong," an original cut, is available digitally now.

    The concert DVD, Water on the Road, meanwhile, boasts the singer playing Pearl Jam tunes, which in essence, means he covered himself! He also plays ukulele songs, covers and selections from his 2007 solo album/soundtrack Into the Wild at a pair of Washington D.C. solo shows from August 16th and 17th, 2008. It was directed by Christoph Green and Fugazi's Brendan Canty.
