Jeff Ament has revealed that he went through a unique songwriting process for Acts , the debut album of his side project, RNDM .  The Pearl Jam bassist says that he culled the songs from a horde of material he’d been working on for the last 15 years.

“Five or six years ago I started looking at my cupboards and realized I had, like, 200 unfinished songs,” Ament tells the Toronto Sun .  “So I took it upon myself to finish things.  My cupboards are a little lighter and that feels somehow better.”

Ament adds that while Acts arrives in stores on Tuesday, fans will need to wait a while longer to get their hands on Pearl Jam’s next album.  “There's nothing really scheduled [for Pearl Jam] right now,” he explains.  “I'm sure once we get through the holidays, we'll get on the phone with each other and figure out what we're doing next.”
