Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready has crafted the score for the new film The Glamour & The Squalor, and we’re happy to team up with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician to bring you the exclusive premiere of the song “Grandmother Earth.”

The Marq Evans-directed film centers on the life and career of iconic Seattle-area DJ Marco Collins, who helped bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Weezer, Garbage and others catch their big break. Included in the soundtrack for the film are cuts of dialogue, along with some of the radio sessions performed by the likes of Bush, The Presidents of the United States of America, No Doubt, Sunny Day Real Estate, Sebadoh, Violent Femmes and many more.

The track itself is an instrumental piece, heavy in nature filled with reverb and distortion while providing a more atmospheric and uplifting vibe.

McCready says, “The Score album is dedicated to Ashley, who helps me with my musical vision, my muse. And to my kids who inspire me daily. Thanks to Chris Adams for being awesome and a great organizer! Thanks to Kevin Moyer for suggesting we release this as an album! Thanks to Marco for allowing me to help his story. And to the entire cast and crew for The Glamour and The Squalor film. This is also in remembrance of all the musicians from Seattle who aren’t here anymore, but their music remains…”

Director Marq Evans adds, “Working with Mike on the score for The Glamour & The Squalor was a dream, not just because I’ve been a fan of his since I was a kid, but more importantly because of what a uniquely talented artist he is. Mike really felt the film, and the score he created elevated it to an entirely new level. It’s a beautiful listen and I’m so glad we’re putting it out.”

Look for The Glamour & The Squalor original soundtrack and an original score album both arriving digitally and on CD on Sept. 1 via Lakeshore Records. See the full track listing for the soundtrack below. The film is available to order on DVD here or purchased as a download here, while the soundtrack can be ordered here.
