The teen daughter of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, Olivia, has released a gorgeous ballad entitled My Father’s Daughter.
Co-written by Eddie and Irish singer-songwriter-icon Glen Hansard, the track is one of two that Olivia sings on the soundtrack for upcoming drama film Flag Day, which is directed by and stars Sean Penn. The track’s clip is a composite of scenes from the film.
Serendipitously, the film also features Penn’s own daughter Dylan Penn, completing the ouroboros of father-daughter love.
Said Penn: “After this flood of gorgeous songs from Cat Power, Glen Hansard, and Eddie Vedder, we were just about to do a final mix on the film when Ed sent me Olivia singing My Father’s Daughter. It became just the perfect cherry on top of the sundae.”
