While chatting with Marco Collins’ 98.9 KPNW show on June 15th 2023, Stone Gossard talked about Pearl Jam’s new album.

We’re getting close on finishing a record with Andrew Watt”, Gossard said of the follow-up to 2020’s Gigaton. “He’s been a pop producer for years but he loves rock and we are making a great record, probably the heaviest record we have done in a long long time. There’s some really exciting things on it that makes us go ‘oh wow, this was all worth it’’”.

It’s gonna be good and it’s gonna be heavy. It’s a full rock record. I promise you that“, he concluded.
