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) and David Bryan (Bon Jovi) 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.
Jane’s Addiction performed live last year for the first time in 3 years, playing with Red Hot Chili Peppers, featuring John Frusciante, at a private memorial.
