Exclusive: Eddie Vedder Contributes Live "No More" to "Body of War" Soundtrack

February 5, 2008 1:43 PM ET

Following a successful run providing songs for Into the Wild, Eddie Vedder will hit a soundtrack again this March on Body of War: Songs That Inspired an Iraq War Veteran. The double-disc album will accompany the film Body of War, a documentary that follows the story of paralyzed twenty-six-year-old veteran Tomas Young, who served in Iraq for less than a week before he was shot and severely injured, and his subsequent crusade to question the war (Young curated the soundtrack himself; proceeds from sales will go to Iraq Veterans Against the War).

Vedder wrote the song "No More" specifically to accompany the film and first premiered it with Ben Harper's accompaniment at last year's Lollapalooza. The soundtrack will feature that live version of the track, as well as contributions from Neil Young, Bright Eyes, Serj Tankian and Tom Morello. The double album will be released on March 18th; the film, which has been on the international festival circuit, hits theaters in March as well.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
