New Footage Of Jane’s In The Studio & Live In South America

The following clip was posted at janesaddiction.com earlier today. The clip directed by Todd Newman, features live footage from the band’s recent trip to South America. In between the live footage are shots of the band working in the studio on the tentatively titled disc The Great Escape Artist. One thing that really caught my attention as I watched the clip was the history of the mixing desk the band appears to be using. I don’t want to give it away but you can watch the clip and see for yourself.

Perry Farrell is an icon in USA. Musician, actor and director, he is the founder of alternative rock bands as Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros. He is also the creator of the Lollapalooza festival.

Not easy for a rock star to shift towards a world more electro. The story began with a meeting between Joachim and Perry in Los Angeles, an essay in a studio resulted successful, and then was born a first song made of the mixture of these two universes. A second song quickly saw the light of day and at the end they were eleven songs to make an album half way between PetShop Boys, Curiosity Killed the Cat, OMD.

The album will be released in the United States in the coming months and the first live of Perry Farrell with the songs produced by Joachim, will take place at Santiago de Chile during the Lolapalooza festival, the 2nd of April.

The first previews presented on this album, will be available here soon.

JANE’S ADDICTION–singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, and drummer Stephen Perkins–and producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) recently added TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek to the creative team.  Sitek, best known for his production work on TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, will be writing and playing bass on the new album.

The band—who wrote the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience–is recording their fourth studio album in Los Angeles, tentatively scheduled for a summer of 2011 release on Capitol Records.

“Dave, Steve and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music,” says Perry Farrell.  “It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential.”

“This process has been both inspiring and incredibly freeing,” says Dave Navarro. “The events over the last year have proven themselves to be a necessary part of the journey as they have led us to our current creative team and direction.”
