Jane’s Addiction streams new album for one week

THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST (Capitol)—the first studio album by JANE’S ADDICTION in eight years—will have its world premiere exclusively on the iTunes Store starting today, Tuesday, October 11, streamed free in its entirety for one week leading up its October 18 in-store release date.  THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST has been mastered specifically for iTunes to optimize sound quality when downloaded. Here’s the album at this link:

JANE’S ADDICTION lead guitarist DAVE NAVARRO says, “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.”

THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST—the band’s fourth studio album–features the transfixing “Irresistible Force,” a Top Ten hit on the alternative rock chart.  The album was produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek on the creative team. Sitek, best known for his production work for TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album. T

On the touring front, the pioneering alt-rock band–frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass—recently sold out two shows in both Chicago (September 24 and 25, Metro) and Los Angeles (October 3 and 4, John Anson Ford Theatre) which were rapturously received by the band’s fans.  Next, they head into New York City for two sold-out shows Monday, October 17 and Tuesday, October 18 at Irving Plaza as part of their third and final pair of small venue shows with Citi to mark the release of THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST.  In 2012, JANE’S ADDICTION will embark on a world tour.
