Holy shit, it’s happening.
It was announced on Friday that John Frusciante, despite years of anticipation and worry from his fans, IS, in fact, releasing an album this year. July 9 is Letur Lefr’s official scheduled release date. With the exception of a few collaborative projects throughout the past couple years (including work with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and the Mars Volta, and his wife Nicole Turley’s band, Swahili Blonde), this will be the first solo release of his since the brilliant 2009′s The Empyrean ::swoon::
48 days and counting, my friends. It will be worth the wait.
(A big shout out to Invisible Movement for being the first to share this exciting news.)
