To the website ‘Billboard.com’ bass player Jeff Amount revealed that the famous American rock band Pearl Jam, is working on their tenth studio album. This year the band celebrates their twenty years of existence.
Also a solo tour from frontman Eddie Vedder is scheduled (currently touring in Australia) and there are rumors that he is writing a new album, the long awaited follow-up from his debut ‘Into The Wild‘ (the movie soundtrack in 2007).
They have written twenty-five songs for the new Pearl Jam album, to be recorded later this year. “April will be the time where we get together and learn to play all these demos and figure out which 12-15 of them float to the top,” Ammount said.
Pearl Jam is focussed on putting together reissues of their albums ‘Vs.’ and ‘Vitalogy’ as they did successfully with their debut ‘Ten‘ a few years ago. The band is also working on a Cameron Crowde-directed documentary and book celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band, that they are eager to look forward to the future.
It’s clear it will be a very busy year for Pearl Jam. In addition to recording a new Pearl Jam album, the group are planning a special 20th anniversary destination festival tentatively scheduled for Labor Day weekend in America.
