Body of War Soundtrack: Eddie Vedder, et al.

You can watch the video for the Eddie Vedder original song “No More” that is featured in the soundtrack Body of War: Songs That Inspired an Iraq War Veteran. The film itself is in some art house theaters now, and more to come.

Eddie talks about his reasons for becoming involved in the project here. Man, his solo stuff is excellent. But he’s just one of many artists; see the track list below.

Buy (and listen to clips from) the double album. It’s thematic, not musically cohesive. But that’s not an insurmountable hurdle and is to be expected from an anti-war album. In related news, check these 70 free downloadable protest songs.

The cover art for the album is by the once-again-newsworthy (for his sold-out trilogy of Obama posters: Progress, Hope, and Change) Obey/Andre the Giant artist Shepard Fairey.
