As previously reported, John Frusciante will follow up his recent Letur-Lefr EP with his second solo effort of 2012, PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone, on September 24th. Back in May, the former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist promised that he’d give away a free song titled “Wall of Doors” prior to its release. That day has come and, as expected, it’s a real trip.
Through a cyclone of inventive percussion, Frusciante has crafted an erratic masterpiece that bounces around on a wall of sound that would give Phil Spector an aneurysm. To help clarify the aural madness, the songwriter released a short statement about the song on his official website:
“This song, recorded in September 2010, marks the point at which I began combining 60s and early 70s production styles with modern electronic production styles. This song was also the first time I successfully balanced pop music with abstract forms of music. This song showed me that the pop parts of myself and the more adventurous parts of myself could blend without one compromising the scope of the other.”
