Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell is proud to present his Kind Heaven Orchestra’s brand new single, “Mend.” Perry worked with some of the best in the business, Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Elliot Easton (The Cars), David Bryan (Bon Jovi) and bandmate Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) along with his wife, Etty Lau Farrell, made this song special for Farrell. The single is to be released today.
Written with Hawkins, “Mend” addresses the relationship of a mutual friend falling apart. Lyrics like “I want to be with her again In lovers clouds, my head surrounded. Oh, that’s the only way I must see her again So my broken heart can mend,” shed light on his heartbreak. Farrell explains of his motivation “I’ve tried to reach through his ribcage and examine the heart of a good friend. Tried to empathize with what he was going through. I tried to mend my friend.”
This release comes in the wake of the compilation of Perry Farrell’s work (outside of Jane’s Addiction and Porno For Pyros) in his box set THE GLITZ: THE GLAMOUR, which was released January 2021. More Porno For Pyros music is forthcoming and post-pandemic Jane’s Addiction dates are currently being announced.
“MEND” is very well composed from start to finish you can feel Perry reaching out through the song wanting nothing more than to “MEND”
