Earlier this week, Perry Farrell shared a photo of himself writing new material with Jane’s Addiction bandmate Chris Chaney and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Farrell wrote on Twitter, “Good buddies came over for music y “mitchiladas” yesterday. Today @ChrisChaneyBass and I head to @taylorhawkins studio to lay down rhythms.”

It is unknown if this makeshift supergroup is just recording one track, or if it is a larger project. Taylor Hawkins is a huge Jane’s Addiction fan, coming up on stage for tracks like “Chip Away” in the past.

Hawkins even told Rolling Stone last month, “Jane’s Addiction made hard rock interesting lyrically again and kind of put some brains back in there when the brains were getting knocked out of hard rock. Metallica was doing it too, on a certain level, and Bad Brains, but I wasn’t in the weeds. I was just more discovering 1970s bands at that point. When I heard Jane’s Addiction the lyrics were like John Lennon’s in a a weird way. They were esoteric and they made you think.

I remember hearing ‘Pigs in Zen’ and thinking, ‘He’s talking about pigs fucking right now. This means something, doesn’t it? There’s more to this. He’s not just talking about pigs.’ It really made you think. Then Perry Farrell’s Siouxsie and the Banshees–meets–Jon Anderson–on-heroin-and-crack thing was just otherworldly. It was so much scarier than anything pretending to be scary at that point. That song made me think, ‘What the fuck is he talking about?'”
