Pearl Jam making progress on new album
Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard is sharing news about the band's next studio album.
"We really want to finish a record this year," Gossard tells Billboard. "[It's] now between half and three quarters done, but we got some new material and we're excited about hopefully doing some more work on that later in the year."
Among that new material, he divulges, is a brand new hard-edged rocker by fellow Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, "that's fantastic that reminds me of Motorhead. I hope that that one is in the mix coming up."
No release date is set for the as yet untitled follow up to 2009's "Backspacer," but Gossard explains Pearl Jam hopes it will be out in the first half of 2013, "if all goes according to plan."...
