Eddie Vedder provides vocals on Jack Irons album

Former Red Hot Chili Pepper drummer Jack Irons will include Pink Floyd's "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" on his next album.

The 11-song album, "Attention Dimension," will be released in August. "Shine On" features vocals by Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), and bass by Les Claypool (Primus, Les Claypool's Frog Brigade).

Irons was a founding member of the Chili Peppers, and has drummed with many other bands, including Pearl Jam and Neil Young.

In 2001, Claypool included a version of "Shine On" on his "Live Frogs— Set 1" album. (The track is labeled the "Jack Irons Version," without explanation.) "Set 2" released later that year was a re-recording of Floyd's 1977 "Animals" album.
