Since his parting of ways with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2019, Josh Klinghoffer has kept plenty busy, joining Pearl Jam as a touring member while separately lending a hand to Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder onstage and in the studio

On his own, Klinghoffer's also issued two albums under the Pluralone name, 2019’s To Be One with You and 2020’s I Don’t Feel Well. Over the weekend, on New Year's Eve, Klinghoffer took to Pluralone's Instagram page to share an acoustic cover of Thank You For Being A Friend, the theme song for the television show The Golden Girls.
