Pearl Jam record with Incubus guitarist

Pearl Jam were in the studio Tuesday night working on their new album with guest player Mike Einziger of Incubus.

On Wednesday, Einziger tweeted a photo from the session (below), writing, “In the studio with my girl and Eddie Vedder, recording strings for Pearl Jam's new album.”

Rumours are that the Seattle band have reconvened in an L.A. studio to continue work on the project.

Various band members have commented on the work-in-progress over the past year; most recently, guitarist Mike McCready told Rolling Stone that the band hope to have their next album out "this year, for sure."

McCready says the band members are "working on demos right now and we're going to be recording soon.What everybody's been saying is halfway done," he says of the follow-up to 2009's “Backspacer.” "I think that's true – we have seven songs that are relatively completed. But then we have an additional 15 ready to go aside from any that Eddie brings in, so we'll weed through those."

Pearl Jam are working with producer Brendan O'Brien on the project.
