Perry Farrell On The Possibility Of A New Jane’s Addiction Album: “Maybe One More Album Before I Die Would Be Awesome”

During a recent appearance on AXS TV’s “At Home And Social With…”, Perry Farrell was asked about the possibility of a new Jane’s Addiction album. The frontman responded by saying it “would be awesome” to make “one more album” before he dies.

Farrell said the following:

“Well, I can’t speak for everybody, but I’ll speak for myself… Personally, I’ve been making music — I mean, I make music through the week. I have plans to release a track a month.

I love the guys in JANE’S ADDICTION and I wanna record with them. But I don’t know what their plans are. But I’ll talk to ’em about it.

These days, it’s a little bit different. We — meaning us older guys that are established now — there’s not really a need to come out with albums. Although maybe one more album before I die would be awesome, with JANE’S. And I think we can do it too. I would like to be prolific for the next five years, I think. Then I’ll be able to take a vacation.

I call ’em up from time to time, [and I tell them], ‘I’ve got this track, man.’ But they’re not ready. So I give it off to [my solo project] KIND HEAVEN ORCHESTRA.”

On another note, Farrell also confirmed that Porno For Pyros will be releasing a new song called “Aqua” in the near future. He said the following about that:

“It’s about how water affects mankind’s mental health.”
