William Goodman of Spin.com recently conducted an interview with JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.Spin.com: How did TV ON THE RADIO's Dave Sitek get involved with the new JANE'S ADDICTION LP? Perry: When Duff McKagan decided he didn't want to work with us anymore, there was a moment of silence. Everyone had gripes, but at the same time, it was a sad time because we were building something together. It's like a sports team, then one guy gets traded or retires or gets injured. But your team has to go on. That's the state we were in. Our producer Rich Costey (MUSE, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, WEEZER, FRANZ FERDINAND) said, "Hey, I have a friend…" and it was Dave. Rich said, "If you guys work together, there would be explosions." So I looked Dave up. He was just finishing up a record of his own. But when we met, he was very enthusiastic. He's a true artist and with an original, contemporary sound. Spin.com: What, exactly, is the creative process for the LP? Perry: We are writing now like a modern band would write. When we started in the mid-'80s there wasn't personal computers. I'm very excited about all those technological aspects of music. So, our creative process is very different. We have options now to make music through technology and we're taking advantage of it; we're not afraid of it. But we're not just slapping loops together. We're true musicians. We're using technology for ideas and some of those ideas remain in the song. We'll write some tracks and send them back and forth, and we'll deconstruct a demo. Paradigms start to appear from this digital correspondence. We've already written three albums worth of music. But today, with everyone's short attention span, we'll only have nine songs on the album. You know, refine it down to 45 minutes of material. Next week, when we finally get into the studio together, these loops and electronic ideas that we've written through email will come together. Spin.com: How do the songs sounding compared to previous JANE'S releases? Perry: Well, all I can say is that we're on the right track. It would be easy to say, "I've got a big reputation. You're not going to tell me how to write a song. I know how to write a song. I know how to play my instrument. And here's an idea." That's not going to cut it today. Everybody's ears need to be excited with fresh sounds, interesting chord structures, arrangements, and compositions. And it's not easy to come up with something original and fresh. What can help you are electronics. They've helped me to not rush and not be full of myself and realize my reputation isn't going to get you by. Read the entire interview from Spin.com.
