Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Guitarist John Frusciante to Release Double Electronic Album
John Frusciante announced the forthcoming release of two solo albums, I and II. Due to arrive in early 2023, the double electronic albums will be out via Acid Test Records’ sub label Avenue 66. ‘I’ (pronounced ‘one’) will feature seven tracks on vinyl, and ‘II’ (pronounced ‘two’) includes songs for CD and digital formats. These will be Frusciante’s 12th and 13th albums, respectively.
“After a year and a half writing and recording rock music, I needed to clear my head,” Frusciante wrote about the record. “I listened to and made music where things generally happen gradually rather than suddenly. I would set up patches … hearing one sound morph into others, making changes to a patch only after having listened for quite a while, gradually adding elements, and finally manipulating the sounds on the fly.”
