A few weeks back we got the surprise announcement of former Red Hot Chili Pepper's guitarist John Frusciante gearing up to release a new EP this July titled, Letur-Lefr. Now we get our first taste of the upcoming EP with the new track "Glowe", as well as more information on the EP and AN EVEN BIGGER ANNOUNCEMENT! According to the JF official website, the upcoming EP will feature 5 new songs written and produced by Frusciante himself and "features a few friends on vocals" (PLEASE BE RZA). Letur-Lefr is set to be released in Japan on July 4th and will be released to the rest of the world on July 16th and 17th. You can preorder the album here and receive an immediate download of the new song "Glowe" which you can listen to as well as check out the album's tracklisting after the jump.

However, that is not all that we receiving from Mr. Frusciante this year... According to our friends at Invisible-Movement.net and on the JF official website, John has announced his upcoming 11th Solo LP titled PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone to drop this September.
The tracks on Letur-Lefr are from 2010 and PBX was made in 2011. Letur is a compilation, a selected portion of music I made that year while PBX was conceived as an album, the songs having been recorded in succession. The records are very different from each other, so prior to the release of the LP, I will make available a free download of a song called Walls and Doors. This song pointed the way towards PBX, but was recorded 7 months earlier. I always took it for granted that Walls and Doors would be part of the record, but as it turned out the record was better off without it.
As you can tell i'm pretty fucking amped for these upcoming releases! PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone will be released in Japan on September 12th, in North America on September 25th and in the rest of the world on September 24th and will be available on vinyl, CD, cassette and in 32 bit, FLAC and MP3 digital formats. Make sure you pick them both up when they release.
