Pearl Jam Working On New Album

(Gibson) Eddie Vedder said that Pearl Jam are hard at work on their new studio album, which will be the band's tenth. The sessions come in the midst of Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary year as a group, which is being commemorated in re-issues, a Wisconsin festival this summer and an upcoming Cameron Crowe-directed documentary. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Vedder talked about his band and his new ukulele album.

"I just wanted it to be the one sound," the singer said about his new album, Ukulele Songs. "At first it was kind of a joke, and then it became a little bit of a challenge, a puzzle, to see if I could create 11 or 12 songs with just a ukulele. It's like painting with one color. You can ­really appreciate the subtleties and changes in tone."

With all the hoopla about Pearl Jam's anniversary, Vedder said he's doing his best not to be too nostalgic. "I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road," he said. "Being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich – and then you get back on the highway. I don't want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station." more on this story
