Jane’s Addiction has done a fairly good job keeping details of its forthcoming album The Great Escape Artist under wraps — a tracklist has yet to be revealed, for example — but the band’s label, Capitol Records, has now released the cover art for the record, which will now come out Oct. 18 following a slight delay. As you can see above, the cover forgoes the pedestrian band shot of 2003’s Strays and instead goes a more artistic route, although not in as an inflammatory vein as Nothing’s Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual.
