Pearl Jam Leaked Track May Be For Eat Pray Love

A Pearl Jam song called "Better Days" leaked onto the Interwebs last week, allegedly hacked from what was supposed to be the secure site of PJ's label, Monkeywrench Records. The song circulated virally across the web, along with speculation about what sessions the song is from and what is was intended for. The song was meant to be exchanged between the band's manager and someone else when it was hacked. Someone probably got fired over this breach of security, but nevertheless, check out the lilting, pretty song here.
Entertainment Weekly reports exclusively that song is meant for the Eat Pray Love soundtrack. Eat Pray Love is an upcoming Julia Roberts romantic, "find yourself" movie, which is due out this summer.
EW> pointed out that seven million people bought the book on which the film is based and that PJ singer Eddie Vedder, who is really showing his contemplative and gentle side here, is friends with Javier Bardem, who stars in the film. So perhaps this news is both smart and true, since a lot of people are expected to see the film and since there is a friendship at the heart of the possible collaboration.
What did you think of "Better Days?" I love the melancholy feel, for sure.
