In an unlikely twist of brilliance, Pearl Jam have covered “Let It Go” from hit Disney animated movie Frozen at a gig in Italy.

The Seattle rock band, fronted by Eddie Vedder, played their own take on the Oscar-winning song by launching into the chorus during an extended version of their own track “Daughter”.

Pearl Jam were performing at Milan’s Stadio San Siro on Friday night as part of their European tour. The group are set to headline Austin City Limits Festival in the US in October alongside OutKast and Eminem.

“Let It Go”, performed by Idina Menzel’s character Queen Elsa in the 2013 film and released as a single by Demi Lovato, won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in February.

Last week, Frozen director Jennifer Lee hinted at the possibility of a sequel after the movie became the highest-grossing of its genre in history.

“We’ll see,” she told E! Online. “Never say never.”

Executive producer Don Hahn chimed in, adding that he thinks the audience “would always love to see more of those characters”.


Meanwhile, a Frozen stage musical is in development and due to showcase on Broadway at an as-yet-unspecified time in the future.

“We’re not demanding speed, we’re demanding excellence,” said Disney’s CEO Bob Iger.
