Pearl Jam bass player expects new album from band this year
Jeff Ament, the bass guitar player with Seattle rock band Pearl Jam, has suggested that fans should expect a new album to come out sometime this year.
The 45-year-old told Billboard that Pearl Jam have managed to put together a number of tracks fairly swiftly from two recording sessions so far and he is guessing the recording process will continue in this vein.
"There's certainly been groups of songs that we've recorded very quickly," he remarked.
"I'm kind of approaching it with the idea that it'll work out like those sessions did."
Frontman Eddie Vedder, drummer Matt Cameron and guitar players Stone Gossard and Mike McCready are helping to put the pieces together.
The album will be the first one for more than ten years that features producer and long-time Pearl Jam collaborator Brendan O'Brien back behind the mixing desk.
In recent months, O'Brien has remastered Pearl Jam's most successful album, Ten, which will be re-released later in 2009.Posted on 9 Feb 2009 11:48 to category : Band / Celebrity News
