Ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante has announced a new solo album, entitled Enclosure. This effort comes nearly a month after the debut EP from Kimono Kult, Frusciante’s new project with the Mars Volta’s Omar Rodríguez-López. Enclosure‘s release date is set for April 8th.
According to a preview written by Premier Guitar’s Tess Jeffers:
Just as Frusciante’s last few albums were forays into the prog-pop landscape, Enclosure uses drum machines and expansive effects to set the mood. Though Frusciante interjects guitar solos seemingly at will, some fans may feel the genius guitar playing he’s known for is understated here, especially when compared to the influential work of his Chili Pepper past. Yet over the nine tracks, Frusciante’s solos arrive not as mere tangents, but as the main event: Guitar is an oscillating vehicle that carries his music into new planes.
