GLENN HUGHES: New Album Update

Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) fan site has been updated with the following message:

"Glenn will be entering the studio this month to begin recording his new solo album. It's not just any studio, but in fact, the Hollywood Hills home of none other than RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith, who will also be playing on it. The former home of Hollywood movie star Cary Grant, it has wide expansive vaulted ceilings providing fantastic acoustics, which they plan on utilizing to the fullest! Joining Glenn and Chad will be JJ Marsh and another RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS [member] (!!)John Frusciante, who has written a song for the new record and will most likely provide other contributions to the record. Smith also co-produced Hughes' 2005 album 'Soul Mover' and will fill the same role on the new release.

"'[While] writing new music for this record, Chad and I thought it would be great to have John come in, write and play on a couple of the tunes,' Glenn says. "John has written a song specifically for me.' [The CD is] tipped to feature tracks such as 'Oil and Water', 'Frail', 'Black Light', 'Stepping On' and 'The Valiant Denial'. Ryan Hewitt is to be the engineer and mixer for the new record. He's worked with the CHILI PEPPERS, BLINK-182, U2, BON JOVI, BILLY JOEL and many others.

"There'll be a new video shot in early February and they're talking to Jim LaRocca about that — you may remember, he directed 'Days of Avalon'. It's unsure which song yet, but it'll be filmed at Chad's other home in Malibu, California."
