The Earthlings Tour coincides with the release of Vedder's highly anticipated new album, Earthling, out on February 11. Produced by Andrew Watt, the album features the previously released tracks 'Long Way' and 'The Haves'.
Earlier this year, Vedder and Hansard collaborated on the soundtrack to Sean Penn's Flag Day.
