It's been a busy year for Eddie Vedder. Not only did Pearl Jam release their new album Gigaton back in March, but Vedder also dropped new songs 'Matter of Time' and 'Say Hi' after performing them live at a virtual benefit event for the EB Research Partnership in November. With just a few days left to spare in 2020, Vedder released an EP, as well.

The Matter of Time EP, which includes 'Matter of Time' and 'Say Hi' on the tracklist, sees Vedder tackle some of Pearl Jam's catalog, as well as Bruce Springsteen's 'Growin' Up.' Vedder dropped his acoustic take of 'Grownin' Up' on his YouTube channel, as well, so fans could take a listen.

This isn't the first time Vedder has covered Springsteen's track, either. He's included it in his live sets in the past, including when he performed a pre-set before Pearl Jam's first show of the Vote For Change Tour back in 2007.

Vedder also released acoustic versions of Pearl Jam’s 'Just Breathe,' 'Future Days,' and 'Porch' on his new EP.
