During the interview, here is what he stated: “We’ve recorded some songs. We’re on our way. We’re making music.”

It was noted how the band have hardly gotten to promote their last album, 2020’s Gigaton, due to the pandemic. After a hiatus of a couple of years, the band are back in the studio. Gossard said, “It’s important for us to maintain that irreverence to songwriting, in terms of like, just throwing rough vocals on, just taking stabs at stuff, trying stuff.”

As Gossard previously confirmed to Spinthe new album will be produced by Andrew Watt, who is fresh off his Grammy win for 2021 Producer of the Year. Previously, Watt produced PJ frontman Eddie Vedder’s 2022 solo album, Earthling, and was a member of Vedder’s Earthlings touring band.

“We’re psyched,” Gossard said. “Andrew is a total character. Really, like immediately, we were writing quickly. Spontaneously. Bring in a riff. Let’s knock it out. [Drummer] Matt Cameron is playing his ass off. We didn’t bring any gear down. We were just doing some recording in Andrew’s basement in Beverly Hills, basically. So far, so good.”

Gossard also teased B-sides that he said could lead to somewhat of a sequel to 2003’s Lost Dogs.

“I think we’ve been a little more methodical in terms of trying to start and finish things. There [are] songs out there that we haven’t finished, and there [are] some things — whether they’re B-sides or not, who knows?”

Pearl Jam have rescheduled their North American shows in support of their 2020 album Gigaton as part of a two-leg tour, the first of which will begin May 3 in San Diego, California, and wrap May 20 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Followed by that, a fall leg kicks off Sept. 1 in Quebec City, Quebec, and closes Sept. 22 in Denver, Colorado.
