The ukulele popularity rise continues apace, and I really like it when a new track comes along that helps to change that old fashioned perception that some people still have towards the uke.
Recently, the lead singer of Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder (him of the long hair and the heavy rocking style) announced that he was a complete lover of the ukulele. He then announced (to a stunned Pearl Jam fanbase) that he would be releasing an album of ukulele songs.
Have a listen to the first track made available - Longing To Belong - I think it's rather lovely!
STOP PRESS - now that the album is released, you can read my full review HERE
