Perry Farrell Dishes on New Jane’s Addiction Album
Jane's Addiction is gearing up to release its first album in eight years. The Great Escape Artist is due from Capitol Records this fall.
Singer Perry Farrell spoke with Revolver magazine and explained that the band’s sound has evolved while recording this album. “I don’t know if anyone will say it doesn’t rock enough,” says Farrell. “If anybody who is an old Jane’s fan is going to cast judgment on it, they might say it’s different. But it’s punchy and powerful as sh**.”
Farrell also discussed the speedy departure of bassist Duff McKagan, saying he felt McKagan was too domesticated for life on the road with the band. Dave Sitek, who has officially taken over as the group’s bass player, seems to be a better fit. “I’m a guy who likes to come to work late and have a bottle of wine in my hand,” said Farrell. “[Duff’s] not that guy anymore, so he didn’t appreciate that. Dave is a wild man, and I think it was annoying to him.”
