New sound for ex-Chili Peppers guitarist

A lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers fans were disappointed when guitar player John Frusciante left the band a couple of years ago.

Well, he's now doing his own thing...and if you expect it to sound anything like the Chili Peppers, you'll likely be disappointed.

He's taking a more electronic turn with his music, which you'll hear on his new album, PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone.  It comes out September 25th, but he's offering a free download of a song from the album on his website now.

Frusciante says the song marks the point at which he began combining 60s and early 70s production styles with modern electronic production styles. According to Frusciante:  "This song was also the first time I successfully balanced pop music with abstract forms of music."

Abstract is right.

Check out the tune on this video.  It's a far cry from the straight ahead rock and roll of his last band.

You can download the song here.

You might want to see "Once" twice
