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.
