Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready revealed in a new interview with Rolling Stone that Pearl Jam are currently working on demos for their new album, and will record soon. He also said that there are 7 songs nearly completed, and another 15 they plan to tackle soon along with any ideas Eddie Vedder might bring in. He said the album should be out in 2013.
McCready also described the new material, “I would say as a cliché answer it’s kind of a logical extension of what Backspacer was. But I think there’s a little bit more experimental stuff going on. There’s a Pink Floyd vibe to some of it, there’s a punk rock edge to other stuff.”
