The legendary ?Voice of Rock? presents his brand new album ?Music For the Divine? to be released in Europe on June 9th 2006 on Frontiers Records in his own words. Enjoy the read !
With each album I record I like to have an opening track that signifies what kind of record I am about to make. With the guitar introduction and the bombastic drums, bass, grand piano and guitar, it grabs the listener. This track is one of my all time favourites.
What can I say? This is the classic funk rock performance with the introduction with my own special synth wah bass groove.
This song just really moves. An amazing hook in the chorus with super funk verse.
This House Quite possibly one of the finest I have written in my career. This song should be heard all over the world on the radio.
You Got Soul
I wanted to put on the album a fierce funk rock track featuring the super lung style of singing that my rock fans love. As with some tracks on the album, I am playing funk guitar on this song.
I first wrote and sang this song on acoustic guitar and when I first played it to Chad and when his wife walked in the room and heard it, she cried. It is a sad but beautiful song. One of my favourites.
Three years ago a good friend of mine Lana Clarkson was found dead in music producer Phil Spector?s home. As I release this album he goes on trial for her allegedly killing her. I am very angry and I vented my frustration out in this song.
Nights in White Satin
The first collaboration I did with John and Chad from RHCP. what can you say about this it is probably one of the best cover songs I have ever done. Frusciante rules.
Big rock groove with one of the voices appearing from outer space in the chorus. Great live song.
This is How I Feel
When I played this song to Chad Smith, we both thought John Frusciante would be perfect to play on this. It signals a new era of song writing for me which basically has been inside of me for many years, but I walked through the fear to record this song.
The closer on my album is an autobiographical of the changes that have happened in my life all coming to a climax of emotion announcing my divine path of spiritualism.
