Eddie Vedder and Natalie Maines release "Golden State"

August 20 2012

August 19th marks the one-year anniversary of the release of the West Memphis Three, three men who were controversially convicted as teenagers in 1994 for the murder of three young boys. About a year before Jessie Misskelley, Charles Baldwin, and Damien Echols gained their freedom, Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam and Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks joined forces onstage at the West Memphis Three Rally in Little Rock, Arkansas. On this new track, Vedder and Maines cover the John Doe song "Golden State," a Vedder favorite, in the spirit of freedom. 


This version of "Golden State"  is now available for download on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/GoldenStateLive. Proceeds will benefit the WM3 Freedom Fund.


iTunes also has Damien Echols' forthcoming book Life After Death available for pre-order here: http://bit.ly/EcholsPreview In his new book, Echols details 18 years of wrongful imprisonment sharing stories of abuse, mistreatment and his incredible perservance.
