John Frusciante’s new album Look Down, See Us is his latest under the Trickfinger moniker. Continuing his sonic exploration of acid house in 2017’s Trick Finger II, the new album is reported to be the first of three releases the musician has planned for the year, per Consequence Of Sound.
The mini-album consists of four songs, GR 8, Meaning To, Cymm Trace and the titular banger Look Down, See Us. Listen to it here.
Look Down, See Us was released under Frusciante’s new label, Evar Records, which describes itself as “an experimental electronic label emphasising genre-defying transitory hybrid musical spaces with music for the brain and body alike”.
Frusciante’s other forthcoming releases as Trickfinger include She Smiles Because She Presses the Button, due on 3 June, as well as a yet-to-be-named LP.
Red Hot Chili Peppers fans rejoiced when Frusciante announced his return to the band earlier this year. The cherry on top came during Rolling Stone’s interview with Chad Smith, who revealed that the band was indeed writing a new album with Frusciante.
“For now, we’ll mostly be concentrating on new songs and writing a new record. We’re all real excited to make new music,” the drummer said.
Like many artists, the Chili Peppers had to put a pause on their live schedule, postponing and cancelling shows out of safety from COVID-19. They were set to headline at the Boston Calling festival on 24 May, which has now been cancelled.
