On Saturday, Cameron Crowe spun some tunes on Sirius/XMU’s Pearl Jam station, and among the tracks he played was “Chinese,” a previously unreleased Pearl Jam demo written by Stone Gossard and recorded in 1991. Some of the song, Crowe said, will appear on the DVD for Pearl Jam 20, which Crowe directed. The song has no lyrics—just Eddie Vedder doing a sort of mellow wail in the background and someone else (I think) chanting in a rhythmic falsetto. But these vocal parts are set over a recognizably early-90s Pearl Jam instrumental.
It begins about a minute-and-a-half in on the recording below. (Via Stereogum.)
