John Frusciante has announced that he’ll be releasing a new EP, Outsides , next month.  The former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist says that the forthcoming release will feature “a ten-minute guitar solo and two abstract ‘out’ pieces of music.”

“It's a modern approach to the concepts of harmony found in some late 50s/early 60s free jazz and some 20th century classical,” he says about Outsides in a statement. “Making forward moving, full sounding music without resorting to any familiar musical relationships of harmony to serve as a basis has been a goal of mine for quite a while. Both songs have my style of drums and guitar solos, but nevertheless I think of them as my version of modern classical music.”

Outsides will arrive in stores on August 27.  If you pre-order the EP now at JohnFrusciante.com , you'll score an immediate download of a bonus track titled “Sol.”
