Perry Farrell has just announced the details of his latest star-studded musical project.
The former Jane’s Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza Festival founder will release the debut album with his new band, Satellite Party, in the US on May 15.
The album, titled ‘Ultra Payloaded’, features guests including New Order/ Joy Division bassist Peter Hook, The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Fergie of Black Eyed Peas, and electronica outfit Thievery Corporation, among others.
The concept album will contain elements of rock, electronica, urban beats and symphony. One song, ‘Woman In The Window’, features a previously unreleased vocal track by Jim Morrison.
According to a spokesperson “Satellite Party was born out of Farrell‘s passionate belief that one step at a time people can change the world, and with this endeavor, he is launching a musical movement to do just that. Weaving together an array of genres with Farrell‘s modernist thinking, the music of Satellite Party tells a story through a collaborative brain trust of artists, musicians and environmentalists called The Solutionists, who seek to redesign and come up with solutions for the world.”
The band will make its live debut on January 25 as part of the 2007 ESPN Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado.
