PERRY FARRELL SAYS NEXT JANE’S ADDICTION WILL HAVE NIGHTMARE & FAIRYTALE THEMES, 60 SONGS ALREADY WRITTEN
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell talked about his ambitious plans for Jane’s Addiction’s next album. He said in recent weeks he has written 60 songs and that he hasn’t been this prolific as a songwriter since he was in his 20′s. Farrell has described the songs as “a nightmare, a fairy tale, all mixed in one.” He said that he has decided to write songs from a fresh angle for this album. He had originally considered continuing to write about themes of escapism like he did on The Great Escape Artist, but he claims, “It didn’t make a big enough splash. If it would have made a bigger splash I would have continued [its themes].”
Farrell said that he plans on continuing to map out the record in as early as January, and he expects the ideas to really jell and come together by this time next year.
