Pearl Jam, Let It Go, Frozen. Enough said.
Seattle rockers Pearl Jam covered the smash hit Disney track ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen during a gig a Milan’s Stadio San Siro on Friday night (June 20, 2014). The band played their own take of the song during an extended version of their own track ‘Daughter’.
Pearl Jam covered 'Let It Go' From 'Frozen'
Originally recorded by Broadway star Idina Menzel, who voices Queen Elsa in the animated movie. Since it’s release last year, Frozen has become the highest grossing animation of all time and the fifth highest grossing movie of all time. It follows fearless optimist Anna who teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey in Everest-like conditions to find Anna’s sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter. Oh, and a snow named Olaf is along for the ride.
Meanwhile, Pearl Jam are set to headline this year’s Austin City Limits festival alongside Eminem and OutKast. The US festival takes place over two weekends, with Beck, Calvin Harris, The Replacements, Lorde, Belle & Sebastian, Interpol, St Vincent. Joining them on the bill will be Lana Del Rey, Foster the People, Chromeo, Temples and Jenny Lewis.
To our knowledge, Pearl Jam’s cover of Let It Go is the first time a rock band have covered a contemporary Disney tune – but if you know difference, let us know in the comments section.
