Vedder debuted two of the tracks at a virtual fundraiser last month (November 18).
The ‘Venture Into Cures’ event was organized by Vedder and his wife Jill to help raise awareness about individuals and families living with the rare condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB).
Speaking at the event, Jill said: “Ed and I are incredibly grateful to everyone joining us for Venture Into Cures. Every day kids with EB and their families face astonishing challenges. This event will give people a glimpse into their world.
“EBRP’s mission is to find a cure for EB, and this event will help bring us one step closer to making that mission a reality by adding momentum to the work being done.”
In addition to ‘Matter of Time’, Vedder played an updated version of the song ‘Say Hi’, a song which was originally written for a child – Eli Meyer – afflicted with EB.
