Cover art: Jane’s Addiction, ‘The Great Escape Artist’ — due out Oct. 18

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.

  1. I wasn’t holding much hope for this new record as Strays was absolutely awful. When Avery rejoined, it looked as though they might have been capable of rediscovering that old dark voodoo that made them so special to start with but when he left for the second time, it wasn’t looking good. However, from what I’ve heard so far, this could just be a true return to the good old days. Fingers crossed even if the artwork looks like a Primus album.
