A few days ago, one of our readers, Serena Zanolli, met Mike McCready in Prague. During the quick chat they had, Mike revealed that Pearl Jam have a lot of songs that are almost ready and that he’s very satisfied about them. He also added that it won’t be long before a new album is ready, even if there’s still a lot of work to do.

The forthcoming, still untitled new album, will be produced by Andrew Watt who also produced Eddie Vedder’s latest solo record Earthling at the beginning of the year. Andrew Watt produced also many other artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Post Malone and The Kid LAROI.

Stone Gossard confirmed in an interview for what McCready already said. He also added that the band will keep on working on new songs for the next year, before touring the USA.

As of now, Pearl Jam have a US tour scheduled for September and Eddie Vedder will perform at The Ohana Festival in October. There have been many rumors about a possible South America, New Zealand and Australia tour at the beginning of 2023 but there are no official confirmations yet.
