Stone Talks to Rolling Stone (and Debuts More Brad Music!)

There are lots of good answers where Stone compares his experience with Pearl Jam to his experience with Pearl Jam in this interview with Rolling Stone but being that this is a Pearl Jam blog, I know what you want!
How far along are you with the new Pearl Jam record?
I don't know, it's hard to say. We've recorded some songs, and we're going to record and write some more. You never know, it might be that we're a song away or two, or it might be that we're going to record six or seven more songs. I think the main thing is that were not in a rush and there's no urgency to it. 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.
