First music heard from the groundbreaking band’s first studio album in eight years
Album set to be release August 2011 through Parlophone
Jane’s Addiction yesterday (April 7th) gave their fans the chance to be the first to hear music from The Great Escape Artist, their first new studio album in eight years.
The band’s singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins are giving away a free download of the final mix of ”End To The Lies” exclusively at their website: www.janesaddiction.com. The Great Escape Artist will be released this August on Parlophone (exact date TBC).
An early, unfinished version of “End To The Lies” leaked last Wednesday (30th March) in Chile when Farrell made an appearance on the “La Ley D Rock” program on the Chilean radio station Radio Futuro, after which the song became an instant viral sensation. Jane’s Addiction were in Chile as one of the headliners of the inaugural Lollapalooza Chile, which took place last weekend (April 2-3) in Santiago’s O’Higgins Park.
For The Great Escape Artist, Jane’s Addiction are working with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album. The band, with Chris Chaney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011 (see preliminary dates below).
