Eddie Vedder Updates on New Pearl Jam Album

Eddie Vedder Updates on New Pearl Jam Album -

Seattle veterans Pearl Jam were working on fresh new music on and off throughout 2012. However Eddie Vedder and co have purposely not set any timetable or window for the new record, due to band members continuing to work on various solo projects and tours.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Vedder was asked for an update on the band's latest project, he said:

"Um, maybe halfway there. We're taking our time. I was talking to Jeff [Ament] today, we were texting, he's got his group up there. He's heading to the West Coast, I'm heading east. And we're out here like, you know, like Johnny Appleseed. He's covering part of the country. I'm doing the other. And at some point we'll join forces again for sure, but the band is as healthy as ever and I'm sure it's good to get a little break from each other, but it's nice to - we'll be ready to go when we're ready to go."

He continued:

"It just comes out. It sounds like it sounds like. We really work together as a unit these days. It's really the compilation of all the parts. It's not like one guy trying to tell everybody, 'These are my songs. This is what it should sound like.' We've figured out after all these years that if everybody just puts their stamp on it, then it sounds how we want it to. Then it sounds new, 'cause everyone is growing, you know. Everyone is growing after all these years."
