Embrace the Darkness

#1 Post by Noonesshocking » Fri Aug 31, 2018 2:07 pm

It’s been nearly a decade since this song was recorded, and it has yet to leak (everything does eventually). This place has been dead lately so let’s needlessly speculate about how we could finally hear this thing. Maybe an “insider” who lurks here would say fuck it and let it loose. Maybe, since the band seems to be on better terms, they agree to release it.


I dont care if it sucks. I just wanna hear it :balls:

I'll bet it'd be like, "Wow, this would be a pretty cool song if it was an instrumental."

But yeah, they should just throw it on iTunes or whatever and make a few bucks off it. Can't be worse than "Another Soulmate".

Which by the way...what the fuck happened to that song? Didn't they pull it very suddenly? I mean, granted it sucked, but that hasn't stopped them otherwise.

I don't think they really wanted Another Soulmate released - iirc it came out as they launched a short tour with a couple of other bands who also dropped new tracks at the same time - I assumed it was a contractual things as part of the tour - that they produced something new to get publicity for the tour, and once the obligation was met, they pulled it. iirc they only played it live once, with Duff, it didn't even get played on the tour it was released to promote. I guess it was the only thing they had mixed and ready to go so rather than hit the studio to do any actual work it was a case of "this'll do" when they had to turn in something for release.

Similar to the Embrace the Darkness sessions I suppose - once it became clear that new music wasn't going to happen but they were committed to giving Trent two tracks for the tour sampler, they dashed off a couple of old numbers instead - "that'll have to do"

Does Embrace the Darkness even exist as a recording to the extent that there would be something to release?

Given that they abandoned it, there might not be anything fully formed on tape?

I'm sure Eric probably addressed this with Sonny, but I can't face listening to 14 hours of him moaning about Perry and how he (Eric) is the only keeper of the flame for the spirit of Jane's again to find out.

Didn't Eric say that he used the music that was for Embrace the Darkness on one of his songs that he put out on Life.Time?

Or was that a different Jane's song that was never released? Or am I imagining things? :noclue:

Did Eric get any credit for Kettle Whistle (he wrote the lyrics) and Suffersome?

Perry wrote all lyrics for JA.

I don't see the point with the 12,5% story.

Eric, Dave and Steve signed, nobody pointed a gun, the band got together for albums and tours under that agreement, it means it was fair enough.

Jane's fair songwriting credit should be Perry/Eric.
Eric met Perry in 1985, they started to play songs together, and Janes had 90% of the songs ready before Dave and Steve joined the band.

But we know Eric pure-at-heart don't care too much about this legal stuff, while Perry...we know Perry has jewish blood.

Jesus christ... an antisemitic Jane's Addiction fan? That's as bad as all these aging alternative rock fans becoming Republicans. :neutral:

Eric and Perry separately confirmed it was finished.

He used the bassline from the other reznor session song, “i’ll protect you”, on “beneath the ground”. Stephen’s demo drums may have been used too.
