  • Dave Navarro says Jane's Addiction are experimenting with new sounds and instrumentation on the band's first record since 2003's Strays. In an interview with Ultimate-Guitar, the guitarist says, "We are staying within the parameters of Jane's Addiction, which are no parameters and each song is its own thing." Navarro adds that his playing style will take cues from his favorite 80s guitar players: "They are probably the simplest players around there and I'm pretty inspired by them right now."
