That’s right, people. If you’re old like me, then you will be interested to know that Jane’s Addiction — a band without whom major labels would never have given a chance to grunge acts — is streaming its new album in full online.
It’s available at iTunes, of course. Just go there and listen to The Great Escape Artist right now.
The Great Escape Artist is Jane’s first album in eight years and is at least better than that last album they put out, which I actually liked. So, I’m not sure what that says about the record. Most people hated that last album. I was among the minority who dug it, and I dig the feel, vibe, and overall sound of this one a hell of a lot more.
“We are psyched that people will have a chance to hear our whole album before they buy it and we applaud iTunes for standing up for great audio, too,” says Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro.
The Great Escape Artist is the band’s fourth studio album. And probably their last for another eight years because true fans know its only a matter of time before Jane’s collapses again.
