In a recent interview, frontman Perry Farrell
discussed his plans to record a new album that wouldn't exactly follow in the steps of last year's The Great Escape Artist. Farrell said he would like to start working on it in early 2013, stating: "I haven't written this much or been this prolific since I started when I was in my 20s. It's been coming out fantastic. I'm super excited. Everything will really start to jell and come together probably this time next year
According to Antiquiet
, on the decision to distance himself from the original idea of a sequel to The Great Escape Artist, he commented: "I had thought that it would be a great idea. However, I just came up with this other twist to doing the next record. At this point I want to start fresh with a fresh angle
," adding that the record "didn't make a big enough splash. If it would have made a bigger splash I would have continued
Jane's Addiction's fifth LP, which the singer briefly described as "a nightmare, a fairy tale, all mixed in one
," can likely be expected in late 2013.
