Jane’s Addiction Announces New Album Coming Out
It’s been a long eight years between albums, but Jane’s Addiction fans can look forward to some new music just around the corner. The band’s new album, titled ‘The Great Escape Artist,’ is scheduled for a September 27 release on Capitol Records. It marks only the fourth Jane’s studio set since 1988, and their first since 2003′s reunion record ‘Strays.’
Commenting on the album title, lead singer Perry Farrell said, “I love being able to escape my past, even though my past was great. I just love the future even more.”
Farrell went on to describe the new album as “a strange mixture of that post-punk goth darkness that Jane’s had, with what’s going on today with groups like Muse and Radiohead. As much as I want to appease fans and make old Jane’s fans love me, I just can’t help myself from moving forward.”
The band recently filmed a video for the first single, ‘End to the Lies,’ which you can watch below.
