Lolla Exclusive: Be The First To Download Jane’s Addiction’s New Single
Lollapalooza and Jane’s Addiction share intertwined legacies. With that in mind, Perry and the band have decided that it makes perfect sense that Lolla fans should get a special sneak-peek of the new album.
After eight years, Jane’s Addiction fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief: on Tuesday, October 18th the band’s long-awaited new release The Great Escape Artist is hitting the streets. It was well worth the wait.
Frontman Perry Farrel‘s forward-thinking musical ideas anchor the album while pushing the songs into daring new territory. His iconic vocals soar across the mix, perfectly counter-balanced by guitar god Dave Navarro‘s relentless, psychedelic shred. On drums, Stephen Perkins‘ propulsive tribal stomp is nothing less than hypnotic. Along with a talented creative team, including producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) and TV on the Radio’s multi-instrumentalist Dave Sitek on bass, the new LP blazes brave, new trails for the alt-rock pioneers. Together, these massive talents have architected another timeless record by simply doing what they do best – being real.
The band wanted to treat the Lolla-Nation to a special sneak-peek of the new album, offering a free download of the groundbreaking opening track before it’s released tomorrow. So, without further ado, here’s Jane’s Addiction’s brand new single… Underground.
