When asked by interviewer Jeff Sweatman for an update on the next Pearl Jam album, Jeff Ament said this: “I wish I had an answer for you. We have a bunch of stuff that’s sort of partly written. Unfortunately, we have rehearsals coming up for Europe and the shows this summer, so it’s in a little bit of a limbo state right now. We still need to record it; we haven’t really recorded anything. But [there are] a lot of ideas. We’ve sort of been telling ourselves that we weren’t gonna put a ton of pressure on the situation,” he continued. “We really wanna make something great, and we wanna have the freedom to live with some of these ideas for a while and then maybe record them in a different way. We’re sort of exploring all sorts of different things right now. So I think it bodes well for whatever the next album is.“
