John Frusciante has posted a preview of his upcoming album on YouTube.
The video features four minutes of audio snippets from "Enclosure," which is scheduled for release on April 8th. As with much of Frusciante's recent work, the snippets reveal that the guitarist is experimenting with electronic, ambient, and hip-hop sounds on the record. Check it out below.
The full track listing for the album is as follows:
1. Shining Desert
9. Excuses10. Vesiou (Japanese bonus track)11. Scratch (Japanese bonus track/free download)
Speaking about the album in a statement on his official website, Frusciante had the following to say:
"'Enclosure,' upon its completion, was the record which represented the achievement of all the musical goals I had been aiming at for the previous 5 years. It was recorded simultaneously with Black Knights' 'Medieval Chamber,' and as different as the two albums appear to be, they represent one investigative creative thought process. What I learned from one fed directly into the other. 'Enclosure' is presently my last word on the musical statement which began with PBX."
