If you want to hear a new song from Jane’s Addiction’s forthcoming album and the follow-up to Strays — tentatively titled The Great Escape Artist — well then head here, listen to the track, and come back and tell us what you think.
The Great Escape Artist, huh? Coincidentally, that’s how Duff McKagan refers to his recent departure from the band.
Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell was recently on a Chilean radio station to promote the upcoming Lollapalooza Chile festival, and played them the track, called “End of the Lies.” To me, it sounds like a leftover from the Strays recording sessions, but I could be wrong.
It definitely doesn’t harken back to Jane’s of old. It’s got Dave Navarro’s trademark guitars, and Perry’s trademark wails; Perry also says “man” a bunch of times, which is something he did a bunch on Strays. The chorus is grating as shit, and has replaced “It’s Friday, Friday” as the most annoying, catchy chorus I’ve heard in a while. I also think Perry sings, at one point, “You were the foreskin/ I was the real him.” That’s what it sounds like.
Dude, “you were the foreskin?” Somehow, my desire for this album just completely waned.
