During an interview with Seattle's "Ron & Don Show," guitarist Mike McCready said Pearl Jam are working on a film with Almost Famous director Cameron Crowe, that will feature "existing footage" of the band. He added that PJ have recorded 14 songs for their ninth album, which they're making with producer Brendan O'Brien in a California studio. The album, said McCready, should be released before the end of the year. [Via Billboard.com].

Pearl Jam are preparing to tour, too -- a "little thing in the States" and an in-the-works jaunt to South America in 2010. And let's not forget Eddie Vedder's recently-announced solo tour. "We're building up to our big 20th anniversary," McCready said.

Also on the live front, the band was announced as a headliner for San Francisco's Outside Land Music & Arts Festival, and is expected to play Austin City Limits (which is being called "the worst-kept secret since Metallica's SXSW showcase" by the Austin Chronicle).

Eat it up, Pearl Jam fans.
