Former Red Hot Chilli Peppers Guitarist John Frusciante released his 11th full-length studio album ‘Enclosure‘ Tuesday via Record Collection, the guitarist’s own label. The entire album was written, produced, performed and engineered by Frusciante in his Los Angeles-based recording studio while Frusciante simultaneously recorded the album ‘Medieval Chamber’ for hip-hop group Black Knights.
‘Enclosure,’ upon its completion, was the record which represented the achievement of all the musical goals I had been aiming at for the previous five years,” says Frusciante. “It was recorded simultaneously with Black Knights’ ‘Medieval Chamber,’ and as different as the two albums appear to be, they represent one investigative creative thought process. What I learned from one fed directly into the other. ‘Enclosure’ is presently my last word on the musical statement which began with PBX.”
“It’s a great time to be a musician,” Frusciante told Premier Guitar magazine. “Being in the creative process is my favorite part of anything I do. I really love the act of making music.”
