PERRY FARRELL Releases New Song 'Pirate Punk Politician' From 'Kind Heaven' Album

JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell has released a new song, "Pirate Punk Politician". The track will appear on his upcoming album, "Kind Heaven", which is due out June 7 via BMG.

According to Farrell, "Pirate Punk Politician" is "a good old-fashioned protest song about today's strongmen and their tactics of oppression."

"Kind Heaven" marks the first solo album release from the JANE'S ADDICTION and PORNO FOR PYROS frontman since 2001. Conceived by Farrell and produced by Tony Visconti, "Kind Heaven" features Taylor Hawkins (FOO FIGHTERS), Mike Garson (DAVID BOWIE), Matt Chamberlain (SOUNDGARDEN), Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION), Tommy Lee (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Peter Distefano (PORNO FOR PYROS), Dhani Harrison, Elliot Easton (THE CARS), Joachim Garraud (DAVID GUETTA), and other notable star turns. Sonic highlights include orchestral scoring by Hollywood composer Harry Gregson Willams, striking duets with Etty Farrell, and a first-of-its-kind sound mix by IMN Creative to create an all-new music experience for fans.

"Kind Heaven" track listing:

01. (Red, White, And Blue) Cheerfulness
02. Pirate Punk Politician
03. Snakes Have Many Hips
04. Machine Girl
05. One
06. Where Have You Been All My Life

After dissolving his post-punk band PSI COM in 1984, Farrell co-founded influential pioneers of the Los Angeles underground JANE'S ADDICTION, building a rabid fan base behind their legendary, high-energy shows. The band would go on to release the ground-breaking platinum-certified "Nothing's Shocking", two-times-platinum "Ritual De Lo Habitual", gold compilation "Kettle Whistle" and gold-certified "Strays", among their nine album releases.

Farrell subsequently became frontman and co-founder of PORNO FOR PYROS, whose eponymous debut album reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200, yielding the No. 1 single "Pets", and went on to be certified gold, with "Good God's Urge" following three years later. As a solo artist, Farrell released the compilation "Rev" in 1999, followed by his debut solo album "Song Yet To Be Sung" in 2001. Performing as SATELLITE PARTY, he released the album "Ultra Payloaded" in 2007. Farrell is the co-founder and organizer of Lollapalooza, the renowned global festival brand, as well as an environmentalist and human rights activist.

Farrell will kick off a North American tour in support of "Kind Heaven" on June 7 in New York City. The run wraps June 25 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Tickets for the tour go on sale on April 5 at 10 a.m. local time and include a digital download code for "Kind Heaven".
