Song Yet To Be Sung

Song Yet To Be Sung is the first full-length solo album by Perry Farrell.  This album was released on July 31, 2001 by Virgin Records.  This album was originally set to be titled as The Diamond Jubilee but was later changed.  This album has a strong electronic music feel to it, much different than Perry’s previous work.

Although this is a solo album, Jane’s Addiction alumni make appearances on this album.  Martyn LeNoble plays on Happy Birthday Jubilee and Happy Birthday Jubilee (Reprise).  Dave Navarro performs guitar and percussion on the track Song Yet To Be Sung.  Stephen Perkins performs drums on Song Yet To Be Sung, and is given writing and producing credit on Song Yet To Be Sung, Nua Nua, and Admit I.

This solo album evolved out of Perry Farrell’s Gobalee project with Stephen Perkins.  Farrell and Perkins even performed a live a handful of times under the Gobalee name.  However, at some point during the project, Farrell went off on his own.  This may be why Perkins is credited with writing and production on three of the albums tracks.

Alternate Versions:

The Japanese version of this album includes the bonus track Hope, which is otherwise unavailable.

There are two different promotional versions of this album.   The Advance CD and the European promo version, each include the entire album with different promotional artwork.
