Mike McCready on new Pearl Jam album: “You’re gonna hear a lot more lead guitar from me”

Speaking to Classic Rock magazine, Mike McCready shares how sounds the new Pearl Jam album.

It took a long time to make Gigaton, but this new one didn’t take long”, said McCready. “Andrew Watt was like: ‘You guys take forever to make records. Let’s do this, right now.

When asked what the new material sounds like, McCready responds: “It’s a lot heavier than you’d expect. There’s the melody and energy of the first couple of records. Andrew pushed us to play as hard and melodic and thoughtful as we’ve done in a long time. I feel like Matt Cameron’s drumming has elements of what he did in Soundgarden.

For better or worse, you’re gonna hear a lot more lead guitar from me, stuff I haven’t done in a long time. I went crazy, like with Chris Cornell and Temple Of The Dog on Reach Down, all those years ago. I got to do it again. Usually the first or second takes are best. After that I start thinking about it and it doesn’t have the feel. But Andrew caught the lightning in a bottle, as they say.

Pearl Jam will be releasing their new record – produced by Andrew Watt – next year with a possibile release date planned for 04/05/2024.
