Pearl Jam Reveal If Eddie Vedder Is Singing On New Album After Drama


As of two weeks ago, all five members of Pearl Jam were finally reportedly in the studio together. A signed photo auction by Danny Clinch claimed the band collectively signed a photo for him in the studio just two weeks ago.

Pearl Jam Online reports, “Photographer and director Danny Clinch shared a link on Twitter about a charity auction for one of his 2013 Pearl Jam pictures that will be sold in favor of the Kristen Ann Carr Fund. The caption of the soon after deleted tweet was: “A Danny Clinch picture of Pearl Jam, signed two weeks ago by the band members in their recording studio in Seattle”.

What everybody wants to know now is: what were they doing in their recording studio? Did they really start recording a new album? Only time will tell.

Thanks to Demetriosns.”

While Pearl Jam members had reported writing new material in the last year or so, there hadn’t been any real developments since the March 2018 release of “Can’t Deny Me.” The new album was even described as ‘in limbo’ in January.

Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament revealed that Pearl Jam had not collectively worked on in together awhile in an interview conducted around the ‘I Am The Highway’ Chris Cornell tribute show. Ament said he wishes Pearl Jam recorded more often. The band haven’t put out a new album in six years, since Lightning Bolt.

“It’d be fun to record or even just write a song together,” bassist Jeff Ament told Rolling Stone in a new interview. “I think when Chris [Cornell] passed, that’s really been a tough one to wrap our heads around, and then there’s just life stuff.”

Gossard says that he, too, is ready to resume focus on recording with Pearl Jam. “We’re going to make a record, and we’re in the middle of it,” the guitarist says. “We’re just going to keep plugging away until we get one done.”

“We’ve gone in, probably, four or five times in the last couple of years, so we have a whole ton of unfinished stuff,” Ament says. “We’re just sort of in a little bit of limbo. I’m sure everybody’s got a bunch more riffs, and I’m sure Ed’s got a handful of journal lyrics. It’s just going to take us all getting into a room together for six weeks and just knocking something out.”

Ament says he has plenty of music that would potentially work for a new Pearl Jam album. And if not, he’ll find other ways to put it out. “I just have a little groove where I write and paint and walk my dogs,” he says. “Some of the stuff, it could turn into Pearl Jam stuff, and if I get a big group of songs together, I’ll just put it out as a little solo release, which I’ve done three of or something. When I do those, it’s mostly to clean off the shelves and finish stuff; it’s stuff that has been on the Pearl Jam shelf for a few years and nobody is really responding to it. I think all of us have gotten into the habit of finishing stuff up and putting it out. This is a broken record, but I think I’ve said that I would record a lot more with Pearl Jam if that was what could happen. It just hasn’t happened for some reason.”
