"Just Breathe" is a song by the American rock band Pearl Jam. "Just Breathe" was released on October 31, 2009 as the second single from the band's ninth studio album, Backspacer (2009).[1] The single was released as a double A-side along with the song "Got Some". The song was triggered by a chord from "Tuolumne", an instrumental from Eddie Vedder's soundtrack for the 2007 film, Into the Wild.[2] It peaked at number five on the Billboard Rock Charts and number six on the Billboard Alternative Charts, which makes it the band's highest-charting follow-up single since "Wishlist" in 1998.

The song has been featured in several TV shows and movies including Castle, One Tree Hill, Brothers & Sisters, Life as We Know It and Buck, the documentary of Buck Brannaman, played during the film's closing credits.
