Although Pearl Jam recently released a new single, bassist Jeff Ament says they haven’t really gotten to work on their new album yet and they are not pressuring themselves to do so.
The band released “Can’t Deny Me,” back in March which led fans to believe the album would be coming soon. According to Ament, they have “a bunch of stuff that’s sort of partly written.” He added, “Unfortunately, we have rehearsals coming up for Europe and the shows this summer, so it’s in a little bit of a limbo state right now. We still need to record it; we haven’t really recorded anything. But [there are] a lot of ideas.
Aside from Pearl Jam, Ament just released a new solo album.

More Quotes from Ament: “We’ve sort of been telling ourselves that we weren’t gonna put a ton of pressure on the situation. We really wanna make something great, and we wanna have the freedom to live with some of these ideas for a while and then maybe record them in a different way. We’re sort of exploring all sorts of different things right now. So I think it bodes well for whatever the next album is.”
