Pearl Jam rhythm and lead guitarist, Stone Gossard, has disclosed that the band has recorded new songs and would be writing some more for their upcoming studio album.
While talking to Rolling Stone, the 45-year-old guitarist has revealed some encouraging news for the American rock band’s fans that:
“We’ve recorded some songs, and we’re going to record and write some more. It might be that we’re a song away or two, or it might be that we’re going to record six or seven more songs”, Gossard stated.
The guitarist then went on to reveal that the band is working to expand their music boundaries and the fans will certainly hear something new from us.
“The most important thing is that we put something out that continues to expand our boundaries rather than trying to follow what we’ve done in the past. I think it’s a good time to hopefully continue to experiment, and continue to shake it up”, Gossard added.
The 45-year-old also revealed that the band is currently in the studio and jamming together to come out with different ideas.
“It’s just us in the studio screwing around, not taking it too seriously. I think that one of the biggest problems in rock is people thinking too much, putting too much emphasis on getting things perfect or completely sorted out. Sometimes that sound of
not having everything sorted out is kind of cool”, Gossard concluded.
Although the guitarist not hinted a release date for their new album, it is now certain that Pearl Jam are working on a new studio album that will follow up their ‘Backspacer’, which was released in 2009.
