Former JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell has spoken to about his next project, SATELLITE PARTY.

Described as "a hybrid of electronic, rock, experimental house and hip-hop", SATELLITE PARTY also features guitarist Nuno Bettencourt of EXTREME and seasoned world-music percussionist Gabriele Corcos, who is married to "Entourage" actress Debi Mazar.

"I've basically created a musical, and the musical involves a group of artists who call themselves the Solutionists," Farrell explained. "What they do is create flash mobs, where the dancers and musicians and fashionistas and fine artists all get together and collaborate and do these flash mobs in the city. They become a nuisance to the city, and one of the flash mobs causes a riot. The main guy in the story gets hurt, and he's brought to a hospital where he meets this beautiful night nurse and asks [her] to have his friends bring a radio. They begin to listen to the radio together at night, and one night they are transported up to the heavens through this radio transmission ... there's a vast visitation of energy that takes them up to the heavens, where they are involved in this lovely gala. That's what we call the SATELLITE PARTY."

Farrell's project has attracted major-label interest, and he's even lured some of music's biggest names to join the PARTY. THE BLACK EYED PEAS' Fergie will appear on three of the self-titled disc's 13 tracks, which include "The Woman in the Window" and "You Make My Hard Life Easy". He's also recruited PORNO FOR PYROS guitarist Peter DiStefano, JOY DIVISION/ NEW ORDER bassist Peter Hook and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' John Frusciante and Flea. Jack Irons, the PEPPERS' original drummer (and PEARL JAM's subsequent one), pounds the kit on a few tracks.
