It’s Pearl Jam week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and for its inaugural night the audience was treated to a performance of Pearl Jam’s “Footsteps” sung by Chris Cornell. (Watch below.)

Cornell stripped things down for the dimly lit take on the “Jeremy” b-side. He took care of the vocals and the harmonica playing while Scott and Seth Avett from The Avett Brothers joined him on banjo and guitar respectively.

Cornell also talked about his relationship with the fellow Seattle band, the importance of Temple of the Dog and the confusion over the real creator of the song “Footsteps.”

Pearl Jam week continues tonight with a performance from Fleet Foxes’ frontman Robin Pecknold, with Dierks Bentley, Pearl Jam’s guitarist Mike McCready and The Roots performing on Wednesday.

Pearl Jam themselves will hit the stage on Thursday and Friday nights to perform in honor of the release of their latest album, Lightning Bolt, out now.
