Progressive supergroup, Jane Getter Premonition, has teamed up with PopMatters.com to launch a new track, “Surprised,” taken from the band’s Madfish debut, On, out October 2. Stream album
opener, “Surprised,” online at:
“‘Surprised’ is based on the opening picking riff,” Getter told PopMatters. “I came up with it one day when I was practicing and the song took off from there. Being a long-time fan of Living Colour, it was a real treat to have Corey Glover sing on this song (and the album!). His voice is the perfect combination of rock, R&B and gospel, and he brings the intensity and soulfulness to the song that I was hoping for.
“The lyrics came from my frustration and astonishment at how toxic the political arena is right now. I continue to be ‘surprised’ and amazed at how hypocritical and self-serving some politicians are.”
ON is the Jane Getter Premonition's debut for the Madfish label.
Recorded at Avatar Studios in New York, the album features a stellar line-up of Progressive, Jazz and Rock musicians including Adam Holzman (Miles Davis, Steven Wilson), Bryan Beller (Joe Satriiani, The Aristocrats), Chad Wackerman (Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth), Corey Glover (Living Colour), Alex Skolnick (Testament, Savatage, Ozzy Osbourne) and Theo Travis (Steven Wilson, Robert Fripp).
Mixing duties were handled by Adam Holzman at Spin Studios in Long island City, NYC.
