In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Pearl Jam has revealed that their tenth studio album is in the works. Their approach to the 2009 Backspacer follow-up, according to guitarist Stone Gossard, will be more experimental. There has been no confirmation of when it will be released, but the band is “not in a rush and there’s no urgency to [release the album].” According to Gossard on the untitled forthcoming album:

“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. So that people can 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. You try something and at first everybody doesn’t necessarily understand it, and then you look back and you go, thank God we tried something new, because it really opened a door up for us to be able to do this and this and this beyond that.”
