Pearl Jam Releases Cameron Crowe-Directed Live Video
Cameron Crowe and Pearl Jam have gone back to the archives for their new video for "Not For You."
The Crowe-directed music video, crafted from live performances and behind-the-scenes footage, debuted on Imdb.com on Monday.
"We tried to present an emotional scrapbook of what it felt like to be a band member on this 20-year journey," the director said in a statement. "The richness of the footage made our path very clear - just tell the story of the band and let the music guide us. It was a joy to make this."
The new video is the collaborators' first follow-up to "Pearl Jam 20," the Crowe-helmed decades-spanning documentary on the grunge icons which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The doc made its television debut on PBS on Friday night, and will arrive on home video on Oct. 24 from Columbia Records/Sony Music. It won't include the "Not For You" video, though Pearl Jam die-hards should be pleased to find 30 minutes of bonus media.
The Seattle veterans also celebrated their two decades of rock with a full-fledged music festival in East Troy, Wis., in September, playing two sets and joined on the bill by acts including the Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age and Mudhoney.
As for Crowe, the director will return to his day job with the Matt Damon-starring "We Bought a Zoo," due in theaters Dec. 23.
