On April 8, Record Collection will release Enclosure, the 11th full-length album from John Frusciante. Enclosure was written, produced, performed and engineered by Frusciante in his Los Angeles-based recording studio. “Scratch” is the first song recorded during the Enclosure sessions (though it was written during The Empyrean sessions) and is available for free via http://johnfrusciante.com as a high-quality source audio download. Fans can pre-order Enclosure via http://johnfrusciante.com beginning tomorrow, March 11.
“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.”
