Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder, Alice Cooper and Dave Matthews are among artists hosting new episodes of Audible’s ongoing Words + Music series, an audio program described as a combination of music and storytelling.
Vedder’s installment, titled I Am Mine, is set to premiere October 21, and will find the grunge rocker “reflecting on a life at the intersection of art, sensitivity, masculinity, and ascendant pop/rock-super stardom that defined an age.”
Cooper will be giving a rare inside look at the real person behind his iconic shock rock persona in Who I Really Am: The Diary of a Hollywood Vampire, debuting October 7. Meanwhile, Matthews’ currently untitled episode, which has a to-be-announced release date, will find him on an “expedition filled with moments of personal insight, and global impact, scored by new renditions of the music that made him a defining voice in global, popular music.”
Other artists taking part in Words + Music include Against Me!‘s Laura Jane Grace, Elvis Costello and Sharon Van Etten. Previous episodes have been hosted by Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong, St. Vincent, Tom Morello and Patti Smith.
