Eddie Vedder is celebrating the release of his new solo album, Earthling, alongside Bruce Springsteen.

The Pearl Jam frontman will be joined by The Boss for a chat about the record Friday at 2 p.m. ET on Amazon Live.

In a clip from the conversation, Springsteen asks Vedder about some of his influences, including The Jackson 5, The Beatles and The Who, as well as, of course, the “Born to Run” rocker himself.

“Ah, grazie,” Springsteen responds.

Earthling, Vedder’s first solo album in 11 years, is out today. It was produced by Ozzy Osbourne collaborator Andrew Watt and features guests including Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, ex-RHCP guitarist and current Pearl Jam touring member Josh Klinghoffer, Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr and Elton John.
