Speaking in a recent interview with 106.1 The Corner, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament revealed his thoughts about their next album. He said:

“I wish I had an answer for you. We have a bunch of stuff that’s sort of partly written. Unfortunately, we have rehearsals coming up for Europe and the shows this summer, so it’s in a little bit of a limbo state right now.

We still need to record it; we haven’t really recorded anything. But [there are] a lot of ideas.

We’ve sort of been telling ourselves that we weren’t gonna put a ton of pressure on the situation. We really wanna make something great, and we wanna have the freedom to live with some of these ideas for a while and then maybe record them in a different way.

We’re sort of exploring all sorts of different things right now. So I think it bodes well for whatever the next album is.
