Pearl Jam to record new album in 2011

Written by John Ritchie on March 17, 2011

Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament has told Billboard that the band have written 25 songs for a new 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,”

The band have also been working on Cameron Crowde-directed documentary and a book celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band that they are eager to look forward to the future.

Eddie Vedder is currently on a solo tour over here in Australia and drummer Matt Cameron is about to record an album with Soundgarden. Jeff Ament is also set to release a solo album this year, so it looks like a very busy schedule in 2011 for the Pearl Jam Boys.

Pearl Jam are also planning a 20th anniversary festival tentatively scheduled for the Labor Day weekend.
