Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that his band’s forthcoming 10th album will be experimental in its approach. The record, which will be their first since 2009’s Backspacer, probably won’t be out anytime soon, though, as Gossard makes it clear the guys aren’t rushing to get this one out.
But he sounds pretty confident about it, like how he says fans will likely look back at the currently untitled future album in 10 years as one of their favorites. He also said it will be refreshing and unpolished listen. Hmm. You can read what he told Rolling Stone below.
“I think the main thing is that we’re not in a rush and there’s no urgency to it. 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.”
He continued: “We want people to go ‘Wow, that’s kind of weird for Pearl Jam,’ and then 10 years later they can go, ‘Oh, that’s my favorite period’, which is always kind of what happens.”
