Jane’s Addiction release Another Soulmate lyric video

Jane’s Addiction have released a lyric video for their new single, “Another Soulmate”.

"Jane's is kind of known for long songs,” singer Perry Farrell told Rolling Stone recently. “Being this is a one-song single, I thought it'd be interesting to try and write a Beatles-esque short song that would be fast and furious and it would just be fun, dig it and move on, short attention span."

The new tune was inspired by true events.

"Etty [Lau Farrell, Perry's wife] had a girlfriend and this girlfriend, as all people do, really wanted a mate, and I think she shortchanged herself an awful lot in life," Farrell explained. "She's a good-looking woman, she had a career, but when it came to love and romance, she sold herself short all the time and she would reach out to guys that we would scratch our head like, 'What is she doing with this guy?' She said, 'I feel like he's my soul mate.' Any time she'd meet a guy she'd say, 'I feel like he's my soul mate.' So I wrote this song."

Jane’s Addiction are currently playing live dates across North America on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival, along with Alice In Chains, Coheed And Cambria and a half-dozen other acts.
