Having previously paid tribute to Nirvana, Post Malone is now tackling another titan of grunge: Pearl Jam.

The “Circles” artist performed a cover of the PJ tune “Better Man” during his appearance on The Howard Stern Show this week. Speaking with host Howard Stern, Post recalled hearing “Better Man” when he visited his brother Jordan, a Marine who was stationed in Hawaii at the time.

The stripped-down rendition consisted of Post’s voice and an acoustic guitar played by frequent collaborator Andrew Watt, who produced Eddie Vedder‘s new solo album, Earthling, and toured in his Earthlings solo band.

You can watch the performance streaming now on YouTube.

Also during the Stern appearance, Post shared that he received approval from Kurt Cobain‘s daughter Frances Bean Cobain to play his Nirvana tribute set in 2020.

“I…never want to offend anybody by trying to show support, so I just wanted to make sure everything was OK,” Post explained. “And it was OK.”
