"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). 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. 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 including Castle, One Tree Hill, and Brothers & Sisters, as well as the films Life as We Know It and Buck, the documentary of Buck Brannaman, played during the film's closing credits.
