Legendary front-man Perry Farrell has been on the forefront of music, culture and festivals for over 30 years. As a founding member of seminal alternative bands like Jane’s Addiction, Porno For Pyros, and his subsequent solo career, his constantly evolving sound has inspired generations of musicians. As the visionary behind Lollapalooza, Farrell set the standard for experiential music festivals—and as an activist, he channels his passion for the environment, politics, and spirituality into numerous causes.
Today Perry Farrell is proud to present his Kind Heaven Orchestra’s brand new single, “Mend.” Working with friends, Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Elliot Easton (The Cars), David Bryan (Bon Jovi) and bandmate Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) along with his wife, Etty Lau Farrell, made this song special for Farrell.
Written with Hawkins, “Mend” addresses the relationship of a mutual friend falling apart. Lyrics like “I want to be with her again, In lovers clouds, my head surrounded. Oh, that’s the only way, I must see her again, So my broken heart can mend,” shed light on his heartbreak. Farrell explains of his motivation “I’ve tried to reach through his ribcage and examine the heart of a good friend. Tried to empathize with what he was going through. I tried to mend my friend.”
This release comes in the wake of the compilation of Perry Farrell’s work (outside of Jane’s Addiction and Porno For Pyros) in his box set THE GLITZ: THE GLAMOUR, which was released January 2021. More Porno For Pyros music is forthcoming and post-pandemic Jane’s Addiction dates are currently being announced.
The single can be ordered / streamed now at this location.
