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

The following clip was posted at 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.

Forthcoming Perry Farrell Solo Album?

According to the following article on Joachim Garraud’s website, Perry Farrell will be releasing his second solo album in the near future.  Garraud is a French DJ and producer.

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.

Another New Bassist Already Lined Up?

As we reported yesterday, Duff McKagan has left Jane’s Addiction.  Duff spent the last month recording a new album with his band Loaded, and maybe the rest of the guys knew what was coming.  Today Perry posted the following on his Facebook page:

I met with an inspiring fellow tonight. Someone whom I admire for his creativity, and off beat genius. We listened to passionate music together. I found myself aroused… I can’t tell you who he is. He recommended we listen to Henrik Gorecki The 3rd symphony w/ Dawn Upshaw singing. It overcame me…

Does the band already have someone in mind to fill this important vacancy in the band?  It sounds like it:

I love Rich Costey. We are about to add a new collaborator to our team that I met with tonight. This person is a genius, and an innovator. I will tell more in 10 days time…
