Jane's Addiction Are Planning 'Great Escape Artist' Follow-Up

By November 28, 2012

Follow me on:

A lot of '90s bands have reunited in the last few years and put out comeback albums, but the real question is whether any of these groups will decide to stick together for the long haul. One such band is Jane's Addiction, who actually started up in the late '80s but whose Nothing's Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual helped inspire the alt-rock movement of the '90s. (Furthermore, frontman Perry Farrell's idea for Lollapalooza was instrumental in promoting the sound's cultural significance.) The band got together recently to release The Great Escape Artist, and if Farrell has his way, more Jane's will be coming soon.

Speaking with Billboard, Farrell said, "The next album is going to be something that the world has never experienced. I'm building it simultaneously with the live show in mind and it's just going to be out of sight!" Farrell is known for his bold proclamations, but he did say that he has almost 60 songs written for the next record, which he's hoping will drop at some point in 2013.

In the interview, he didn't give any indication if TV on the Radio member Dave Sitek would be helping out again like he did on The Great Escape Artist. Around that album's release, the rest of Jane's noted how critical Sitek was in helping the band update their sound and challenging their preconceived notions about how to make music. Will Sitek be on hand for this new disc?
