The Jane's camp has confirmed exclusively to Spinner that TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek -- also known for his production work with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Massive Attack, and the Foals, and 2010's Maximum Balloon project -- will be playing bass and writing on the untitled new Jane's album, due this summer.
Sitek, along with producer Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse), will be part of the creative team for the as-yet untitled album. However, given the demands on Sitek's time with all his other projects, it seems likely he will be part of the group for the album only. And when Jane's brought in 2011 with two shows in Aspen, Colo. this past weekend, Chris Chaney -- who played bass on 'Strays' -- was back in the fold.
There's little info yet on the new album, with Perry Farrell saying in a press release, "Dave [Navarro], Steve [Perkins] and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music. It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential." Navarro went on to remark, "This process has been both inspiring and incredibly freeing. The events over the last year have proven themselves to be a necessary part of the journey as they have led us to our current creative team and direction."
