Pearl Jam To Release 'Experimental' Album This Year
Pearl Jam have pledged to release their new album before the end of 2013. Guitarist Mike McCready told Rolling Stone that the successor to 2009's "Backspacer" will be out "this year, for sure." He says the album will have an "experimental" twist and draw inspiration from a wide range of sources, from Pink Floyd to punk rock. "I would say as a cliché answer it's kind of a logical extension of what 'Backspacer' was," says McCready, "but I think there's a little bit more experimental stuff going on. There's a Pink Floyd vibe to some of it, there's a punk rock edge to other stuff." McCready adds that seven songs are "relatively completed" and an extra 15 are "ready to go" with long-term producer Brendan O'Brian. "We're excited to get it done, because we've kind of been waiting for about two years to do it," he added. Meanwhile, Pearl Jam have been storming UG charts in recent weeks. The band came third in our top 10 grunge bands ever, and their album "Ten" came forth in our top albums of the 1990s. Are you excited about hearing a new Pearl Jam album? Let us know in the comments.
