Eddie Vedder – streaming second solo album

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is streaming his second solo album “Ukulele Songs” online on We7.

It will be released in a few days, togerther with the  live concert film ‘Water on the Road’ on  31th May. Both through Pearl Jam’s Monkeywrench Records. His solo debut ‘Into The Wild ‘ (2007) is the successful soundtrack of the movie, based on an acoustic guitar sound and the unique voice of Eddie Vedder.

Also Pearl Jam is working in the studio on a new studio album, but the frontman has time to work on his side project and even tour with it this summer. “I’ve been writing songs on the ukulele for at least 10 years” explains Vedder. He’s playing this instrument since he is 14 years old: “The motto is less strings more melody” he states.

In Revolver Magazine he explains more about his own label: “One thing you might suggest to a young band is don’t get involved in any kind of long-term contract, because everything changes on a bimonthly basis: The way people hear music and access it, the way it is distributed..”

“You have to be able to grow and move with the organism that is the music industry. You need to maintain flexibility. Ownership of your own stuff is key and then you’re able to dictate on a present-terms basis what would be the most effective way to protect yourself and what you’ve created. You also don’t want to lock yourself into a situation where a major label owns part of your touring and merchandise.”

Pearl Jam – working on tenth studio album

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.
