To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Pearl Jam are all set to release a book entitled, 'Pearl Jam 20', which will feature previously unreleased photographs, tour notes, archive material and exclusive interviews with Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters). The book is all set to be published by Atlantic Books on September 13.
According to Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam frontman), they are working on a new album so that they don't get too carried away with nostalgia due to the upcoming anniversary celebrations and other things. “I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road, being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich – and then you get back on the highway. I don"t want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station," he was quoted by Rolling Stone magazine as saying.
