Tool issues progress report on new album

Tool guitarist Adam Jones reports that work on the band's highly anticipated new album is "going well." In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Jones had this to say about the new music:
"I'll tell you, it's wonderful. Things are really flowing and going really well, and I'm just blown away at the stuff that's coming together. I'm excited and can't wait for it to be done. It's something I've been missing for a long time [laughs], that beautiful collaboration that we have because we're all so different and have different tastes. But again, when you are all meeting in the middle and that thing you do that meets in the middle is just beautiful, it's very rewarding. So yes, I'm very happy."
Regarding their progress, Jones says that the band has twently potential song ideas:
"We probably have 20 potential song ideas now. Of course, 20 won't be on the record. We're just jamming. But I'll tell you, there's nothing better than having too many good songs then not enough. It's great. You pick your faves."
Meanwhile, Jones reports that frontman Maynard James Keenan has written some lyrics, "but until the song's done and he knows how the end is, he's still figuring out the flow." To date, the band still hasn't provided a timetable for the record's release.
