To commemorate their 20th anniversary, Pearl Jam are releasing Live on Ten Legs – a sequel to their 1998 live album, Live on Two Legs. Out January 18th, the 18-track LP is taken from shows between 2003 and 2010 and features hits ("Alive," "Jeremy") mixed with fan favorites ("Yellow Ledbetter," "Porch") and a cover of PiL's "Public Image." Pearl Jam wrapped a lengthy world tour in July, but "nothing is confirmed for next year," says guitarist Stone Gossard. "We might play some shows, but probably not that many."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
