Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready has confirmed that the band will be releasing a new album in 2013.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine McCready said “I would say as a cliché answer it’s kind of a logical extension of what ‘Backspacer‘ was. 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 said that seven songs are ‘relatively completed’ and there are an additional 15 ‘ready to go’. “We’re excited to get it done, because we’ve kind of been waiting for about two years to do it,” he explained.
The album will be the first since 2009’s “Backspacer”
