Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is no rookie to the solo side. Having released several albums over the course of ten years, he's built up quite the discography. His newest record "PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone", the first since his departure from the Chili Peppers, is due out September 25th.
The first single from the record, "Walls And Doors" dropped on his website earlier today, along with a statement regarding the new song and record.
"This song, recorded in September 2010, marks the point at which I began combining 60s and early 70s production styles with modern electronic production styles. This song was also the first time I successfully balanced pop music with abstract forms of music. This song showed me that the pop parts of myself and the more adventurous parts of myself could blend without one compromising the scope of the other. After this song I did not pick up the ball and run, but rather I continued to challenge myself, refine my engineering, experiment and investigate, more from the abstract angle than the pop angle, until March 2011, at which point I’d figured out the things which made it possible for me to consistently make precisely the music I wanted to make, in which I was not restraining any part of my nature, allowing me to begin the recording of PBX. I might mention that Walls And Doors was also the first time my electronic instruments had begun to convey the visceral energy that one associates with people beating the fuck out of their instruments, in the context of a pop song."
