Pearl Jam begins work on new set

SEATTLE, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Pearl Jam is easing into work on its eighth studio album in its hometown of Seattle, Billboard.com reported Tuesday.

"We're recording but not really putting any pressure for something to actually come out of it," frontman Eddie Vedder told former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones on his Los Angeles radio show.

The album, which is still unnamed, will be the follow-up to 2002's "Riot Act" and Pearl Jam's first since leaving longtime label Epic last year. The band had already confirmed the set would be released on the BMG label.

Band members have been working on their own stuff -- guitarist Stone Gossard is making a new album with his Brad side project, while drummer Matt Cameron has wrapped Hater's first new album since 1993 featuring his ex-Soundgarden mate Ben Shepherd and John McBain, his longtime collaborator in Wellwater Conspiracy.
