Jane's Addiction are back this August with a new album, which they showcased this week with new single 'End To The Lies' which, intriguingly boasts an appearance by the Master Musicians of Joujouka. You can download the track here.

Jane's Addiction, featuring original members - singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins - announced the collaboration on their website: "We wanted to add a sense of ancient ritual and some depth beyond normal instrumentation, getting off the typical path that rock bands use, etc,” said Perry Farrell. “And we wanted the music to cast a spell on the ‘lies.’”

New album The Great Escape Artist was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. Costey said the Master Musicians of Joujouka’s parts weren’t recorded with the band or in a studio: “It was all recorded in the Master Musicians Madrassa [school house] which is out in the village of Joujouka in Morocco where they live. The drums were recorded in the kitchen and the rhiatas in the main room of the house."

Farrell added: "Lots of sounds were recorded with them so you may hear more of them on the record. You'll have to wait and see."

Master Musicians of Joujouka manager and sometimes producer Frank Rynne said: "I met Jane's Addiction in 1991 backstage at the Marquee in London. They are sublime rock & rollers, musicians and artists. I am proud of the Master Musicians performance for this record and the musicians worked hard and really listened hard before they did what they always do and blasted hard trance rhiatas and funky tribal beats."

The Master Musicians recordings for Jane’s featured a 14-man lineup, many of whom will be appearing at the festival held in their home village in June, with more plans to be announced soon. For more information about that, go go here.

Can you go wrong with Dave Sitek? Hopefully not. 'Strays' was a dog of an album so let's hope for the return of that Jane's dark Voodoo that made them so unique the first time around.
