(hennemusic) Eddie Vedder is streaming audio of his acoustic cover of the 1973 Bruce Springsteen classic, "Growin' Up." The version is featured on the newly-released "Matter Of Time" EP; issued on Christmas Day, the set features a pair of the singer's songs - "Say Hi" and the title track - alongside four "acoustic at home" recordings from 2020 that include three Pearl Jam cuts: "Just Breathe", "Future Days" and "Porch."

While "Growin' Up" originally appeared on Springsteen's album debut, "Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.", Vedder released a video for "Matter Of Time" last month

following a live performance of the song during a virtual event, "Venture Into Cures", that raised awareness and funds for people living with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).

The life-threatening genetic disorder - which affects approximately 500,000 people worldwide - sees children face severe pain, open external and internal wounds, and a grueling daily bandaging process due to the fragile skin condition, for which a treatment and cure continues to be sought.
