Video footage of JANE’S ADDICTION recording its new track “End To The Lies” can be viewed below. The song comes from the band’s forthcoming album, “The Great Escape Artist”, which is set for an August release through Capitol.
On Thursday (April 7), JANE’S ADDICTION made an MP3 of “End To The Lies” available for free download via the band’s web site, JanesAddiction.com. “To me, it sounds like an updated JANE’S ADDICTION as it has the hypnotic repetitive nature of some of our early work combined with a modern approach,” guitarist Dave Navarro told Spinner. “This track was released as a taste of the record for our die-hard fans. I can’t wait for everyone to hear our first single next month and then the album later in the summer.”
An early, unfinished version of “End To The Lies” leaked on March 30 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 was 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 is 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 Cheney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011.
