In a new interview with Spin magazine, Perry Farrell seemed to indicate that some new music from Jane's Addiction—presumably in the form of a new album—is on the way. "As soon as we finish this [Porno for Pyros] Lolla performance, we're going back home and I'm going to be recording through August," Farrell told Spin. "And that will be for Porno for Pyros, for Kind Heaven Orchestra and for Jane's Addiction."
It's been a long time since the last Jane's album—2011's The Great Escape Artist. Though, Farrell has kept busy with his Kind Heaven Orchestra project, while more recently, unfortunately, guitarist Dave Navarro has been suffering from long-Covid symptoms.
Jane's Addiction announced earlier this year a co-headlining tour with Smashing Pumpkins this fall, and it appears all systems are go—for now. Navarro's Covid battle sidelined Jane's Addiction's performance at Lollapalooza this year, which prompted the resurrection of Porno for Pyros to perform in their place.
Farrell recently teamed up with Pumpkins head honcho Billy Corgan for a rendition of the Jane's classic "Jane Says" to coincide with the tour announcement, as well as to benefit victims of the Highland Park shooting, where Corgan owns a tea shop.
Last year while speaking with AXS TV, Farrell told host Katie Daryl, "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, that would be awesome with Jane's. And I think we could do it too. I would like to be prolific through next five years, then I'll be able to take a vacation."
Knowing how hard Farrell works at his craft, and given how prolific he's been, it's hard to see him vacationing somewhere instead of making music. That said, when you put in as many miles as Farrell does, a vacation sounds pretty sweet, actually.
