Over the weekend at Lollapalooza, I told my friend, “You know, I sure haven’t seen Perry Farrell these days.” Well, speak of the Devil, and he’ll come knocking at your door: Jane’s Addiction’s back. In anticipation of their Uproar Festival tour with Alice in Chains, the Los Angeles troupe has unlocked a new single titled, “Another Soulmate”. It’s essentially everything you’d expect from Strays-era Jane’s, complete with unnecessary chunky distortion and overpolished vocals.

Still, Farrell’s pretty stoked about the song, as he told Rolling Stone:  ”Jane’s is kind of known for long songs; 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.

“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. 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.”
