Eddie Vedder has officially released his cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" via iTunes. The live recording is a stripped-down version of the song, featuring only Vedder's vocals and an acoustic guitar -- as well as the united voice of the crowd.
Vedder's cover was recorded during his July 18 solo show in Meco, Portugal, marking the first time the outspoken anti-war Pearl Jam frontman has performed a rendition of Lennon's legendary anti-war song.
"I think it is the most powerful song ever written," Vedder said of "Imagine" prior to his performance, according to Consequence of Sound. "Which is why I have never played it."
Proceeds from iTunes sales will go to Heartbeat.fm, an organization that helps to unite Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians.
