Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament has told Billboard that the band have written 25 songs for a new album to be recorded later this year. “April will be the time where we get together and learn to play all these demos and figure out which 12-15 of them float to the top,” he said. According to Ament, the band have been focused on putting together reissues of their albums Vs. and Vitalogy and working on a Cameron Crowde-directed documentary and book celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band that they are eager to look forward to the future.

This will be a busy year for the members of Pearl Jam, both collectively and on their own. Frontman Eddie Vedder is currently on a solo tour in Australia and is about to begin work on a new solo album. Drummer Matt Cameron is about to record a new album with Soundgarden and Ament is set to release a new disc from his solo project Tres Mts. In addition to recording a new Pearl Jam album, the group are planning a special 20th anniversary destination festival tentatively scheduled for Labor Day weekend.
